Agile development can be daunting. It takes a fundamentally different approach to classical project management. Articles suggest "faster delivery" or "greater efficiency", but how do concepts like "inspect and adapt" or "deliver value" fit with the real need to plan and manage work?
Jay has 20+ years of experience in leading teams from small companies to multinationals. These have ranged from classical program management to crossfunctional agile development. Through all of these there has been a consistent need to manage work with effective planning.
In this course, Jay demystifies Agile planning, covering key techniques such as:
Estimation Poker for collaborative estimation
Organise Iteration (Sprint) planning
Controlling technical debt
Story points as an estimation tool
Jay covers not only the techniques but the mindset. For Agile to be successful, you need to know not only what processes to follow, but why and how those processes are used. Not just "doing Agile" but "being Agile". The concepts are explained clearly using a range of powerful analogies from Usain Bolt's running style to medieval fire building.
This course is intended for anyone working in an Agile team, especially those building plans and managing work. This may include Product Owners, Business Analysts or Project Managers depending on organisation.
