Product Backlog vs Sprint Backlog

Why

The Product Backlog

  • Acceptance conversation helping to refine “the thing”
  • Acceptance conversation helping to refine “the value”

The Sprint Backlog

  • Business disengaged very quickly, as they just don’t understand the language
  • Teams are scrutinised and / or micromanaged by men-in-the-middle
  • Reviews end up becoming “reporting meetings”
  • Busy work is created
  • “Product” becomes something that is not delivering the expected benefit
  • Eventually, the program stops
