Video tutorial: Managing your Scrum Product Backlog with the help of a simple Excel sheet

April 25, 2008 by Artem Marchenko

In this tutorial I demonstrate how you can manage your Scrum Product Backlog in a very simple Excel sheet based on a popular free template. Watch this screencast if you want to get started with Scrum. You will see how to get started, how to detail, inject and remove requirements, how to build burndown and velocity charts.

You can download the somewhat lower quality version of the tutorial from Google Video.

This video is a great help to dig into those Scrum template sheets!
The hint how to measure the velocity is also nice.
Thx a lot!

PS: Keep in mind that there is also a Sprint Backlog Template (http://agilesoftwaredevelopment.com/scrum/simple-sprint-backlog) which is also very helpful and works the same way.

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on numerous websites for
about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a
way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help
would be really appreciated!
