Backlog Refinement

Product Backlog refinement is the act of adding detail, estimates, and order to items in the Product Backlog. This is an ongoing process in which the Product Owner and the Team collaborate on the details of the Product Backlog, refine and revise it. It ensures that the Team and Product Owner have sufficiently defined Product Backlog items so that Sprint Planning runs more smoothly and without surprises. A formal meeting or workshop activity mid-way through the Sprint ensures the Team and the Product Owner dedicate time to this Scrum event.
