    Hi All-
    Call some one help me with following questions

    1- Can iteration Back log include Use Cases?

    2- Can product back log also contain user stories? In my experience with managing Agile we only have PBI not user stories but I am taking online CSM course from a source where it says Product backlog can have User stories.

    3-If a Development team member is not a team player who is responsible for Firing him/her


    Thanks

    Hi Nina,

    For 1 --
    Per the Scrum Guide, the Sprint Backlog includes Product Backlog items selected and the plan needed to realize the increment, along with the goal.

    If the Team chooses to capture requirements as Use Cases, I take it to fall within the Scrum framework.

    For 2 --
    "Product Backlog Item" is the formal term which can encompass User Stories or more.

    If you don't mind me asking, what is the online CSM course? I'm not aware of any that don't require in-person training. Can you share the link?

    For 3 --
    I would check with HR.

    I appreciate the response. The course I am taking is through Skillport.com. This course prepares you for CSM as per the site

    I think the firing would be the joint responsibility of the project manager and the HR

    Nitin is right: The Product Backlog consists of Product Backlog Items. A Product Backlog Item can be anything from a User Story to a Use Case to a Bug or anything else that helps the Scrum Team to work on the requirements.

    The issue about firing/hiring a team member is a bit more complicated.
    Let's take the pure "Scrum stance". Scrum says, the team is self-organizing. This includes the team hiring and firing their own members. The Scrum Master might facilitate that. I actually have seen that work, but it can also be a tough game if the team is reluctant to break the harmony or is trying to avoid a conflict by just firing somebody.
    With a "reality stance", companies often don't allow the Scrum teams to take on that responsibility. In most cases, it's still the functional manager who has that responsibility - sometimes together with the personnel department. However, if they understand the principles of Scrum, they heed the voice of the Scrum team.

    Does this help you?
