A Sprint Backlog is the set of items selected from the Product Backlog that the delivery team works on during the upcoming sprint. Also, it is a plan for delivering projects incrementally.
The sprint backlog consists of items that can be completed during each sprint. During the sprint planning meeting, all the tasks are stored in the form of User Stories in the Product Backlog and moved to the Sprint Backlog.
How to organize Sprint Backlog?
The Delivery Team select the items to work on from the list on the Product Backlog and move it to the Sprint Backlog and breaks it down into Sprint task, the Delivery team assigned each task from the list on the Product Backlog to themselves. Each Sprint has a duration for completion of the Sprint task assigned to Team which is usually 2 weeks.
To achieve the Sprint Goal, the Sprint Backlog has to be monitored effectively using a Kanban Board that allows Teams to show the work that needs to be done, what they are working on, and the work that has been done. The Kanban Board can be maintained Manually using a sticky note on board, can also be maintained electronically or using an Excel Sheet. The illustration below shows an example of a Kanban showing the status of the Sprint.
Who is in charge of the sprint backlog?
The scrum master, product owner, and the delivery team are in charge of to share ownership of the sprint backlog because all the agile team will bring their knowledge and understanding to the project when the sprint begins. The team chooses items from the Product Backlog that needs to be delivered at the end of the Sprint and place it in the Sprint Backlog so that the sprint can start because without the sprint backlog the sprint cannot start.
