Kennis Managing your software inventory

Managing your software inventory

At Avisi we are using Scrum more and more on our development teams. And just now I ran into this interesting blog post on software inventory. Typical Scrum activities are organizing the backlog or planning a sprint. These are exactly the activities that are dealing with the inventory of a Scrum team. With the new GreenHopper 6, managing your inventory becomes an easy task.

GreenHopper 6 introduces Scrum rapid boards. A Scrum board in plan mode gives a quick overview of your backlog and all open sprints. The nice thing is that you can modify the filter that produces the backlog. By default all issues for a project are shown in the backlog. But with a little modification of the filter you could exclude Epics and User Stories that are to big to implement in one sprint.
