Scrum backlog templates and examples

November 6, 2006 by Artem Marchenko

Bas Vodde collected and published examples and templates of the Scrum product and Sprint backlogs. Most of them are in MS Excel format. Some (XLS) include a lot of comments, some (XLS) are very colourful. Check them out, Excel can really cover most of the needs of the archived backlog tracking.

A good idea. Though not sure

A good idea. Though not sure if I am able to understand these templates - I personally use different excels. Maybe I will find time to dig through these examples and create some screencast on using them. Or maybe somebody else could do it :)

And exactly two months

And exactly two months later, here is the first video tutorial! :)
Let's see what the comments will say. If the people like the tutorial, I will probably shoot more screencasts for different templates.

Oups, it looks like file was missing on the server for some strange reason.
Anyway, I uploaded it again and you can download the template from the "ph_product_sprint_backlog_0.03.xls" link in the post.

Thank you for noticing the problem, tsj123.
