(5) Your Backlog

Stories and their Tasks

A Scrum Master’s primary role is to manage the Backlog: a project’s stories and tasks.  ScrumMaster makes it easy to add, edit, and delete items, change priorities, change project Target Velocity, and actively manage Agile rituals (Sprint Planning and Retrospective voting, Daily Standup status updates).

Best of all, any change you make dynamically re-calculates all project information.  See the impact of your changes immediately, in real time!
