Course description

Introduction to Release Planning and Workshop

A popular misconception is that agile work involves little or no planning; the reality is that successful agile organizations constantly engage in disciplined planning activities and regularly validate plans against what they've learned in the course of delivering work incrementally.

Agile planning practices impel organizations and project teams to create alignment on the vision and goals of the work to be done, clearly define how teams will work together to foster collaboration, and identify the factors in the environment that will help or hinder the team's success.

Although these practices have evolved in the context of software projects, these approaches and techniques can be applied to many kinds of work.

Who should attend?

This workshop is team focused. This course is intended for all team members, customers, and stakeholders who are responsible for deriving, approving, or just understanding the release plan for their current or upcoming project.
