We all know the Product Backlog: It's that ordered list of everything known to be needed in the product. Ordering means prioritization, so in this Collaboration at Scale webinar, we explored a variety of frameworks that Product Owners and Scrum teams can use to prioritize backlogs. We presented on how to include customers, partners, and stakeholders and how estimates provided by Scrum Teams influence the prioritization of backlogs.
