As a product owner I struggle with people adding bugs or other work in the backlog. This changes the backlog and I am forced to constantly check the ordering of the whole backlog as I am not sure of its state anymore. Any ideas on how I can improve on this?
What we did is add two steps before our workflow - In review by PO and Low priority. Then we set up two boards for our project, a Kanban board that only showed the first two steps and a normal scrum board for the 'regular' workflow. This allows you to review items before they show up in the backlog, and to keep things in a low priority zone for later work.
By doing this you ensure that only reviewed items that are ready to be picked up by your scrum teams appear on the backlog.
