Overview Agile Sprint Series Part #2 - Agile Project Release Planning Workshop

Complete project planning is often overlooked in many teams using the Scrum process. Some teams just plan for the near term and some only go from sprint to sprint. At the end of the day, management, stakeholders, and the team need a long-term vision for their projects. The inability to create a long-term plan is a major contributor to difficulties when trying to use Agile.

The goal of this four-hour workshop, is to cover the best practices for creating an early project plan. Then we will use our plan to estimate costs, to complete resources planning, define key milestones, and create releases. We will also show how an Agile project can be planned by using either date, scope, or budget as its focus. You will see how this approach to project planning allows stakeholders to make business decisions early in the project cycle.

Prerequisites & Audience
There are no prerequisites for this workshop. It is designed to cover the needs of the Agile/Scrum novice and the experienced Agilista.  Experience with a project related to technology or software deployment would be helpful but not necessary. Past attendees included project managers, product managers, developers, business analysts, designers, DBAs, architects, executives and managers.
