Description

A cornerstone of Scrum is ordering your Product Backlog to maximize business value. To accomplish this, your Product Owner must have an intimate understanding of each backlog item and the ability to articulate why a particular item is prioritized over another. Unfortunately, this may be the least understood job in Scrum.

With the new fiscal year just around the corner, we thought we’d show you how Scrum Inc. does it. This webinar will detail how we as a scrum-run organization calculate business value and use it to inform our fiscal and strategic goals. Our quick but quantitative method will give you the practical knowledge you need to maximize the business value of your backlog.

Fresh from our latest quarterly planning meeting, we’ll discuss how to calculate Net Present Value per story point, account for the value of “intangibles”, and manage technical debt as part of the backlog. We will also present example calculations from other industries and examine the nuances that affect your backlog.

Join the live hour-long discussion on October 23rd at 11 a.m. Eastern Time (GMT -5). There will be time for Q&A with live attendees and the webinar will be archived at www.scrumlab.scruminc.com for future reference.

Registrants will receive an email a week before the course with a personalized link to access the webinar. Following the course, you will have access to the slides and archived version of the presentation.
