Definition of Freezer
The portion of the Backlog that contains Items that are ‘out of scope.’
Since this new Capability is not in scope for the current release (Release One), Dan puts it in the Freezer, where it sits waiting for further review and analysis.
It is a good idea for Team Members to be insulated from the Items in the Freezer as much as possible so that they won’t be confused by looking ahead too far into the future.
