Backlog - Do you keep your PBIs smaller than 2 days' effort

Last updated by Brady Stroud [SSW] on 23 May 2022 03:37 pm (about 1 month ago) See History

Avoid monolithic Product Backlog Items (PBIs). Ideally, all PBIs should be less than 2 days. If you are given a feature that is going to take weeks, then split it following this rule.

Figure: Bad example - This is a monolithic 4-day task

Figure: Good example - The same monolithic task, broken down into 4 smaller tasks
