Last time I wrote about sprint planning which is one of four formal events prescribed by Scrum.
In this post I explain what product backlog grooming is, when it is performed, and how it is done.
Backlog grooming is often performed throughout the sprint. Perhaps this is one reason why it’s not considered a formal event.
However, many teams do backlog grooming as an explicit meeting, and some people think it should be incorporated as a formal meeting in the guide, too.
