INVEST (SCRUM/KANBAN/XP Product Backlog Items)

By | September 29, 2016

I just wanted to draw your attention to a SCRUM/KANBAN/XP acronym : INVEST.

INVEST represents the the characteristics of a good quality Product Backlog Item (PBI) :

  • Independent
  • Negotiable
  • Valuable
  • Estimatable
  • Small
  • Testable

See INVEST on Wikipedia

Sounds a bit like a SMART objective…
