Set up a sprint boardAn icebox, a backlog, a to do, a doing, a review, a done column
Set up a wiki page for notesRemember the future you

Write user stories (and bugs and chores)Now make practical achievable fine grained stories written in the language of real people
Estimate storiesUse a scale to estimate complexity of each story
Estimate velocityHow many points can a team like this get through in a sprint
Prioritise storiesList the stories in order of importance and the order in which you will tackle them
