What? The backlog
Enter the second week: the next action I planned was to prepare the project backlog.
A backlog is just a prioritized collection of things to be done, all aiming to the project mission / goal.
Are these things the requirements? Not only.
The backlog is not (only) the list of requirements – nor the classic requirements specification document – but a list of topics to be discussed during the project lifetime. It is a list of all features, functions, technologies, enhancements, questions and bug fixes that could be possibly of value for the project goal.
