The Meetup

The backlog was a great idea, until it wasn’t. Many successful teams are delivering backlog items everyday but their backlogs aren’t getting any smaller. Delivery success is overshadowed by the never ending backlog. Product discovery, dual track agile and OKRs make it worse by accelerating backlog growth without taking anyway any of the rotting items.

Worst of all, doing the backlog distracts from delivering benefit to the customers and responding to change. What are we to do?

In this presentation Allan “Nuke the backlog” Kelly suggests you rethink the very idea of the backlog and rebuild your agile process around outcomes. You have nothing to loose by your burn-down charts.

Who is Allan Kelly: Allan is a keynote conference speaker and author of several books including “Succeeding with OKRs in Agile”, “The Art of Agile Product Ownership” and “Business Patterns for Software Developers”. He blogs at allankelly.net and can be contacted there or on Linkedin.

Allan also has a little surprise for you! Stay tuned.

IMPORTANT: We have a new form of registration, exclusively via ticket. We’ve introduced an additional fee-based ticket category “Give a pledge” as a fundraiser. The donations from these ticket sales are collected there on a quarterly basis and the accumulated sum (minus ticket commission to Xing events) will be donated to a charitable purpose. We would be very happy if as many as possible would buy such a ticket 🙂 Of course you can still choose the all free category.

In the first quarter of 2023 the donations go to: Deutsche Welthungerhilfe e.V.- Winterhilfe: https://www.welthungerhilfe.de/winterhilfe-spenden
