Abstract

The necessity of software as stand-alone products, and as central parts of non-traditional software products have changed how soft- ware products are developed. It started with the introduction of the agile manifesto and has resulted in a change of how software process improve- ments (SPI) are conducted. Although there are agile SPI methods and several agile practices for evaluating and improving current processes and ways-of-working, no method or practices for evaluating the backlog exists. To address this gap, the Backlog Assessment Method (BAM) was developed and applied in collaboration with Telenor Sweden. BAM en- ables agile organizations to assess backlogs, and assure that the backlog items are good-enough for their needs and well aligned with the deci- sion process. The results from the validation show that BAM is feasible and relevant in an industrial environment, and it indicates that BAM is useful as a tool to perform analysis of items in a specific backlog.
