Selecting and delivering the most important work is a critical success factor in Agile projects. But how do you know what is important? Unless you are psychic, some help would come in handy.

Get a guided tour to a variety of strategies and tools to manage your backlog. Understand the benefits of each approach using a model that puts them in context; learn how to make informed decisions on which to use in your situation. E.g. Innovation Games®, Story Map, Software By Numbers, Kano Analysis.
