Definition of Product Backlog Management

In the context of Scrum, Product Backlog Management encompasses the following:

The Product Owner (PO) is responsible for effective Product Backlog management. This means the Product Owner may either perform the aforementioned work themselves or delegate the responsibility to others. However, the PO remains ultimately accountable.

Furthermore, the Scrum Team regularly updates the backlog. This is also known as refinement of the Product Backlog. The purpose of this is to ensure that the backlog remains relevant, understandable and usable. This way, the Scrum Team continues to deliver valuable additions to the product. The Product Owner is also responsible for maximizing the value of the product.
