Agile → Overview → Backlogs → Team Backlog
Use release planning and sprint planning meetings to determine which stories should be moved into a specific agile team's backlog. A team backlog should contain stories that will be committed to by a specific agile team for an upcoming sprint. Stories in a team backlog should be well-written, have a high priority and a high business value. Stories in a team backlog should have an accurate story point estimate before being moved into a specific sprint backlog.
Work items in a team backlog can be moved to and from a release backlog (or another team's backlog) as needed, such as when business priorities change or when opportunities to create better business value arise. Work items in a team backlog can be added, edited, and removed as needed; however, any work item in a team backlog should have a high priority and a high business value.
