The team used JIRA as their task management tool. They added all the tasks to JIRA as user stories, covering each task in as much detail as possible. The team then sliced the stories into different iterations.
Tasks for each web page were spread across 2-3 iterations. When assessing any page, the team would first identify which elements needed to be revamped. These elements were then organized by level of priority. The first iteration of each web page included all the elements that were considered
