Grooming is a meeting that is organized for the Scrum team. In this meeting you have the possibility to express your opinion about the product Backlog. Thus this feedback can be included in the sprint planning meeting and, if necessary, adjusted by the product owner before the sprint takes place. The aim of the meeting is to give the product owner enough time to adjust (the circumstances), to give the Scrum team the opportunity to ask questions, and to “send” a sufficient number of items into the sprint, saving time (and other resources).
