Agile Scrum check list

The idea of this article is to define the set of practices and process for the agile development project based on my experience.
I believe the good practices and checklist are essential for the agile project to measure the performance of the project.
The project teams are starting with agile adoptions and often struggle to find where they are standing. The check list helps to agile team to figure out the painful area and overcome from that.

  • Is the product backlog is created and prioritized?
  • Are all the requirements from all stakeholders for the product captured in the backlog?
  • Is the Product Backlog a manageable size? 
  • Is release plan adjusted after the last Sprint Review Meeting?
