Backlog Decomposition and Refinement

A Chief Product Owner’s backlog contains items which are larger in scope than an individual team’s backlog. To pull prioritized items into individual teams, they may need to be broken down and understood better. The goals of Backlog Decomposition and Refinement are to:

  • identify the complex products and projects which will make the vision a reality

  • break those complex products and projects into independent elements

  • ensure all backlog items can be refined further by the teams into items they can complete in one Sprint
