The backlog is a prioritized list , containing short descriptions of all functionality necessary items to deliver a specific outcome. If an item does not contribute to the projects’ goal, it is removed; and any task that is deemed necessary, is added. The backlog is expected to change often, during the project’s duration. It usually is the primary point of entry for knowledge about requirements, and the work to be done.
