Lesson 2

Think about it: Your team has looked at the topic list and you know what your E-Learning will be about. What should you do now?

How do you identify your Sprint Goal?

The Product Backlog is the key. Your Product Backlog is a list of everything you need to do in order to complete your course.

Sprint Planning

Once you have everything you need listed, your job as Product Owner is to start prioritizing. What step in this project can you complete in the next two weeks?

Sprint Planning

When you are clear on this goal, you can start breaking that work down into smaller pieces. These pieces become your Sprint Backlog.

Sprint Planning

There are many systems for tracking your Product and Sprint Backlogs. Trello and Miro are two popular options at DxH.

Lesson 3

Your team is hard at work. 👩🏾‍💻👨🏽‍💻 Everyone has tasks to complete. So how are they doing? Are you on task?

Which of these things is NOT true about Standups at DxH?

The Daily Standup will help you update your Sprint Backlog. Your Sprint Backlog is a living document. You can add, delete, or re-organize tasks if you need to in order to meet your objective.

Standup Meetings

For example. Let’s say that your team is working on a course in EdApp. At first, the top priority is creating graphics for the course. But then the people writing the course get stuck. They realize they need to find a subject matter expert to give them more information.

Standup Meetings

You can add ‘finding a subject matter expert’ to your backlog and move ‘develop graphics’ down to the bottom of the list.

Standup Meetings

True/False: Anyone can update the Product Backlog.
