Sprint Backlog

Sprint Backlog View

The Sprint Backlog view is a daily tool for the sprint team to keep track of the sprint progress.

Stories with the highest priority have been added to the sprint in the Product Backlog view. The total effort estimate of the stories in the sprint must match the resources available in the sprint period. 

Each Team in a circle has its own tactical queues, zero to one set of Sprints (a series of non-overlapping lanes) and 0-N Kanban lanes. If there is more than one Kanban lane, it will be because the Team offers different classes of services, e.g. different workflows for different service requests.

Tasks can be created directly in the lane a Story is in, using the icon.

“State” Lanes

In the Sprint Backlog view, the team creates tasks for each user story. The Sprint Backlog view has lanes for “To Do”, “Progress” and “Done”. All stories with their tasks start in the “To Do” lane. When a task implementation is initiated or finalized, it is moved to the next state lane. Lanes running across columns with sub-states will be denoted with “DONE” to indicate completion in that sub-state.

Kanban Lanes

Kanban is a lean method to manage and improve work across human systems. This approach aims to manage work by balancing demands with available capacity, and by improving the handling of system-level bottlenecks.

If created in the Product Backlog, Kanban lanes will appear right below the Sprint lane as can also be seen in the screen dump above. See Kanban lane for more details.
