I'm starting a one dev project (me) and it's going to be a short one (Approx. 4 weeks).
In such a short term scenario, I still went through the requirements with the Product Owner (PO), prepared all the user stories, and setup a board.
A first prototype will be released in 2 weeks, and the final release in 3 weeks, with an additional week for user training and some bug corrections.
As it always happens with these things, having a full backlog growing throughout this phase, will hopefully identify some requirements for a potential Phase 2.
For the estimations, it being a one man job, I just went with T-Shirt sizes to make it easier for everyone to understand.
Now that I've described my scenario, here go a few questions:
Would you still go through the exercise of having the PO giving a business value to all the stories, knowing that at least 90% of them at this stage are absolute must have, or would you leave that for whatever remains pending after the first prototype?
Also, any comments,suggestions or best-practices references you might have for such micro-scenarios, would be greatly appreciated.
