Backlog for Team Launch

Here's an exercise for the leadership - expand this simple backlog and track it until the project is completed - the project is to launch a team.

Goal:  lauch a new team;  success criteria - doing sprint 1 and releasing a product increment

 -  An "Order" to create team
 -  Business to deliver Purpose / Vision for new team
 -  Team Roster
 -  Team Infrastructure
 -  Mutate Wishlist into a Product Backlog (visible to team, sized, prioritized by delivery order)
 -  Team Launch Workshop

Here is agile42's advice on creating a great team.
