Backlog grooming occurs when the Product Owner and the rest of the team review and prioritize items on the Backlog.

  • Removing non-relevant user stories
  • Building new user stories
  • Prioritizing the user stories
  • Estimating user stories
  • Correcting said estimates with newly discovered information
  • Dividing high-priority user stories that are too coarse to fit in an iteration
