What Is A Scrum Grooming (Backlog Refinement) Meeting? This Might Surprise You!

Scrum Backlog Refinement (Grooming) Meetings aim to keep the Product Backlog up to date. So the Product Backlog reflects the best know-how and understanding of the Scrum team about the ongoing Scrum project.

Scrum Backlog Refinement meetings can happen on-demand or scheduled basis up to two times a week, 30 minutes each session. The Scrum Team, the Scrum Product Owner, and the Scrum Master participate in these meetings.

During Scrum Backlog Refinement (Grooming) meetings, the participants fine-tune the Product Backlog with the following actions:

  • Add new user stories based on newly discovered requirements.
  • Remove user stories which are no longer required for the product.
  • Fine-tune estimates of user stories.
  • Update priorities of user stories.
  • Split giant user stories into digestible smaller user stories, and prioritize them accordingly.

Here are our other suggestions to improve the outcomes of Backlog Refinement Meetings:

  • Ensure Cross Team Participation, which means you identify the dependencies as early as it is possible,
  • Size User Stories Correctly, which means all user stories can result in a shippable product increment within one single Sprint,
  • Prioritize User Stories, which means you deliver immediate value to end-users, enable quick wins, and make them happy,
  • Estimate Like a Pro, which means you obtain actionable inputs for reliable release planning,
  • Identify Dependencies, which means you pull required teams and resources on board to make your project a success,
  • Uncover Risks, which means you avoid tedious surprises during the later stages of your project.
