      Well, in formal scrum the Team Doesn't have to do estimations. What the Team has to do is agree to do work. If they need to estimate in order to do that, they do - it's part of their self-organization.   Dan  ;-)

      Hi,
      if a backlog grooming meeting is not a formal part of Scrum, then when
      do things get estimated according to formal Scrum?

      Just had the PO send out invitations to the Planning Preparation
      Meeting (the goal of which is basically the same as backlog grooming
      except much less organized, and we don't estimate then, instead we
      estimate during the planning meeting) and did not invite the Scrum
      Master as it is not one of the "Scrum Meetings".

      You know, one of the reasons why I haven't yet been able to use story
      points is because "it is not in the Scrum Guide", now I anticipate
      resistance against proper backlog grooming, because that is not a part
      of formal scrum.

      Is there some kind of unbeatable argument against people using the
      scrum guide, or "formal scrum" as a tool to resist against potentially
      good ideas?

      (Being poorly prepared for the planning meeting is one of the problems
      we have had the longest I think, so it makes sense, to me at least, to
      be enthusiastic about doing something like Backlog Grooming right)

      Cheers,

      Kurt
