Agile Estimating and Planning Training

Duration: 
1 days

Overview

This course takes a deeper dive into the topic of Agile Estimating and Planning at the Release level and at a Program (multi-team) level. Many teams struggle with the topic of 'Just Enough' upfront requirements, 'Just Enough' upfront sizing and design and 'Just Enough' planning so this course is dedicated to demystifying these concepts and walking through practical real world approaches to successful Agile planning and estimating.

This course introduces participants to the 6 levels of planning (Strategic, Portfolio, Roadmap, Release, Iteration, Daily). The first two levels of planning are covered in the Agile Portfolio Management course.

This course assumes you have basic Agile knowledge and experience and have attended foundation courses such as Real World Agile for Teams or similar courses.

Audience

Analysts, architects, business customers, developers, operations, product managers, project managers, team leaders, and testers.
