Re: [scrumdevelopment] Backlog Grooming not a formal part of Scrum?
That is a very good point. I didn't see it that way, but is true.

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 ;-)

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
(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)
