Product Backlog Tips for Distributed Teams

· Keep a clear "Definition of Ready" and implement it

· Use Agile product management tools such as Jira to maintain the Product Backlog and ensure that everyone on the team has access to it

· Allow the Developers to enter PBIs into a temporary bin that is screened by the Product Owner

· Perform periodic story mapping sessions using an online collaboration tool such as Miro

· Make Product Backlog refinement a weekly event totaling 5% of the sprint capacity

· Leave the other 5% of the team refinement capacity for one-on-one SME sessions

· Estimate using physical cards and webcams to keep members engaged
