If you've heard "We took an hour to estimate one story", or "We don't really have anything to demonstrate at our Sprint Review", or "Many of our stories carry over to the next Sprint" then you probably have a backlog problem. This is good to understand. Because, If you fix your backlog then these problems quickly go away.

'Building A Better Backlog - Product Owner Training' is a detailed immersion in the tools, tasks, and ceremonies essential for creating dramatically better backlogs. This 3-day course teaches how to contextualize and understand your product, how to create highly effective agile user stories, and a disciplined structure for user story writing which makes it simple to write stories right, the first time.

Master the skills essential for creating great Agile backlogs. The job of managing an Agile backlog is complex. Product Owners juggle multiple sources of ideas, balance competing priorities, and meet a variety of different stakeholder expectations, all while working to beat their competitors. This workshop provides detailed direction on how to gain competitive advantage while doing these difficult tasks.

Participants learn nine different powerful tools for creating great Agile backlogs, including:
* Value stream maps
* Object diagrams
* Personas
* Persona maps
* Story maps
* Inquiry story templates
* Acceptance criteria
* Paper prototypes
* Business visions

Participants use their actual projects for most of the class exercises, so they leave with real work accomplished. They practice using a revolutionary new inquiry story template for writing user stories. This template makes it almost impossible to write a bad user story.

​In addition, participants practice ceremonies for ideation, user selection, work prioritization, and user feedback. As a result, they leave with a complete workable process for creating great Agile backlogs​.
