Webinar highlights: Efficient Scrum on Backlog

With work-from-home and distributed teams, companies may face challenges in maintaining communication and collaboration amongst team members, as well as issues in work productivity and accountability.

Thus, we held the webinar, “Efficient Scrum on Backlog”, to share about using our all-in-one project and code management tool Backlog to do Scrum in a simple and effective manner.

The webinar started off with an overview of the Scrum process: from prioritizing the product backlog (which consists of user stories and to-do items) to sprint planning, development and daily standup meetings, sprint review, and sprint retrospective.

Following it, we did a step-by-step demo on doing Scrum using Backlog. We also shared a tip on how to easily add many tasks/issues into your project using Google Sheets, one of many integrations available with Backlog.
