We adopted a very basic Scrum-like project management system to help us through a multi-month software platform transition we are doing. We have a SharePoint list to hold the Project Backlog (Epics) and a physical whiteboard (To Do, Doing, Done) to display the stories for each Sprint.
A question/disagreement came up about the location of a verification step, which we want to add. The project manager wanted it added in the Project Backlog and I took the position that it should be included in each Sprint as the Backlog is just for reference, not for process.
Simple question: where should the Verify step go: Backlog or Sprint?
