AA171 - The Shadow Backlog: How Invisible Work Derails Your Teams

In this episode of Arguing Agile, Brian and Om dive into the seedy reality of the "shadow backlog."

Defined as all the hidden work and side projects that don't make it into the "official" backlog, shadow backlog items end up consuming significant time and effort from development teams.

From personal passion projects to break fixes to exploratory work, we discuss the many forms the shadow backlog can take and how it impacts planning, productivity and team focus. Listen to learn how to spot the signs of a growing shadow backlog in your own teams!
