Collaboration at Scale: Backlog Refinement at Scale
With Greg Hutchings, Founder of Amelior Services; Jean-Paul Bayley, Lead Consultant of Bay Spark Ltd.; and Luke Hohmann, Founder and CEO of Conteneo, Inc.


Scrum Teams work best when they collaborate with their product owners to continually refine their backlogs. This is, of course, easier to do when teams are small and collocated. In this webinar, we explored frameworks that support product owners and Scrum Teams working together to refine backlogs in large and/or distributed teams.
