Rank and File
All Scrum tools can manage a backlog. There is a great variety in the power of these tools, however. Managing a small list of a few items is one thing. Being able to manage large backlogs is something we’re quite focused on at VersionOne. Take a look at this video that shows how easy it is to take a raw unorganized backlog and quickly turn it into a sequentially ranked set of features that is ready for the team to dig into.
Sure, the example is done with a relatively small backlog to make the results easily visible, but notice how the number of steps remains constant even with a large backlog in your release. At most, you may need to customize your view to show a greater number of items per page. The power of filters and multi-select…it’ll help you get your backlog in ship shape.
