Analysis

Overview

Maintaining the backlog includes keeping the backlog in up-to-date condition, finding solutions, adding impediments and open questions on weekly meetings.

Task requirements

  • Each week
    • Use weekly meeting logs to collect Impediments and Open Questions.
    • Mark resolved impediments
    • Discuss how to resolve current unresolved impediments
    • Track the Daily availability and send reminder mails if needed
    • Upload a picture of the wall with weekly plan
    • In implementation section fill in what you have done.

Task result

Updated Internal backlog on weekly meetings.

Implementation idea

Send reminders before weekly meetings with requirements for the internal backlog.

INTERNAL_BACKLOG_STRUCTURE_R1

How to demo

Show implementation section and explain what is done.

Design

  • Read thoroughly weekly notes and collected impediments from them.
  • Add following impediments in the backlog:
missing-descriptions There are no clear description to all tasks. 2008-12-16 steve low resolved
switching-tasks ??? 2008-12-16 deyan low unresolved
waiting-for-reviews-and-analyses Too much time is wasted in waiting for reviews and analyses. 2008-12-16 boyan medium unresolved
getting-into-design I had hard time getting into design process. 2008-12-16 alex low resolved
great-task-amount The amount of tasks is too big. 2008-12-22 deyan medium unresolved
getting-into-analysis-process Experienced difficulties getting into analysis process. 2008-12-22 steve medium unresolved
poor-understanding-of-scene Had difficulties in understanding scenes. 2008-12-22 mira medium resolved
blocked-tasks Some tasks couldn't be started due to dependencies of unfinished tasks. 2008-12-22 boyan medium unresolved
no-pc Lack of personal computer. 2009-01-06 jordan medium resolved
no-remote-desktop There was no possibility for using remote desktop. 2009-01-06 kyli medium unresolved
personal-problems Some personal problems non related to the work process. 2009-01-06 gogov medium resolved
  • Some discussions made to decide which impediments are resolved
  • Mark them as resolved in the implementation phase
  • Because we now upload videos from our weeklies, photos of the "weekly wall" are now obsolete.
  • Send notification e-mail to sophie-devs mailgroup:
    Please fill your daily availability for the next week in the backlog.
    

Implementation

  • Notes from weeklies are now added in the backlog
  • Added following impediments in the backlog:

  • Reminder about backlog was sent:

Please, check in the backlog whether you have columns corresponding to your dev id in "Daily Availability" and "Documents" sheets, if you don't have such please add columns by yourself or let me know. Also if you have reported something in "Open questions", "Impediments" and/or "Smells", you must make sure that its status is correct (I recommend you all see the "Impediments" sheet, because I collected there all impediments that were logged during the weeklies). If someone hasn't got access to the backlog, please write me a mail and I'll take care of that. We're doing this in order to make our backlog functional and useful.

  • Maintained backlog
  • A little maintenance work was done in the INTERNAL_BACKLOG_STRUCTURE_R1 task
  • Checked and corrected the status of previously reported impediments.
  • Added columns for the new team members.
