Backlog Grooming by Definition
Backlog grooming is when the product owner and some, or all, of the rest of the team review items on the backlog to ensure the backlog contains the appropriate items, that they are prioritized, and that the items at the top of the backlog are ready for delivery.
Relating Backlog Grooming to Actual Cooking
As a host of a party I will have 30 guests and out of 30 there will be 3 guests who eats fish but no other non-veg. Followed by 7 who are completely vegan and the rest eats pretty much everything edible.
Sounds like a challenge !!!!!.
Based on the requirements I have broken down the epic into three smaller stories.
Daily Scrum: By Definition
The Daily Scrum is a 15-minute time-boxed event for the Development Team to synchronize activities and create a plan for the next 24 hours. This is done by inspecting the work since the last Daily Scrum and forecasting the work that could be done before the next one. The Daily Scrum is held at the same time and place each day to reduce complexity. During the meeting, the Development Team members explain:
- What did I do yesterday that helped the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
- What will I do today to help the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
- Do I see any impediment that prevents me or the Development Team from meeting the Sprint Goal?
Relating Daily Scrum to Actual Cooking😊
I have an impediment I cannot find Tofu for Vegan Menu at the nearest store. Do you guys know where can I find easily.
What I did Yesterday:
I fried fish and served with sliced lemon and some cilantro
What will I do today:
I will be making spicy chicken curry for 10 people.
Retrospective : By Definitation
The Sprint Retrospective is an opportunity for the Scrum Team to inspect itself and create a plan for improvements to be enacted during the next Sprint.
Now relating retrospective to the actual aftermath of cooking.
Feedback from people who ate the food as well as the actual
The food was great but it was salty.
The food was great but the prepratory work took a lot of time.
How do we improve it in the next party ?
Everything sounds oversimiplied when we relate every scrum events to cooking.
