#5 ART Backlog Board
Updated over a week ago

The ART Backlog Board servers two main uses in PI planning:

  1. Input in to PI planning that include the highest priority Features for the ART Backlog.

  2. One of the primary outputs from a successful PI planning event highlighting Feature delivery, Feature dependencies among Teams, and relevant milestones.

ART Backlog Board Overview

  • Each ART participating in the PI Session has their own ART Backlog Board which contains the planned Feature/Enabler (stickies) items for the PI

  • In a Solution Train PI session you can toggle between the different ART Backlog Boards via the top navigation.

  • The ART Backlog Board stickies are prioritized by WSJF

  • ART Backlog Board items can be assigned to Teams, and use colors to visually represent Features that are assigned (Taken) or unassigned

  • Visualize and manage the planned Features/Enablers, the team assignment, and the execution status from the ART Backlog Board
