April 19 - Developing Agile Sprint and Release Plans

May 2 - Intro to Design Thinking

Developing Agile Sprint and Release Plans

The causes of the majority of failed projects can be traced to poor definition and understanding of requirements. Prioritization of requirements and flexibility to adapt to changing requirements are essential for effective development in the Agile environment. Understanding how to adapt and adjust while maintaining strategic alignment is critical to long-term success.

Release plans have become increasingly prevalent in Agile practices and can assist in overall organization and structure of a Scrum project. The Scrum team should understand the vision and the key drivers for delivering value to the customer.

The sprint plan is the key building block of an Agile project. Establishing proper sprint plans is a critical Scrum artifact to ensure that value is delivered quickly and that the team velocity is consistent and meets customer expectations. Given the short time span of sprints (1-4 weeks), it is imperative that the team knows in advance exactly what they will work on in order to minimize waste.

This webinar will assist you in how to create a release plan as well as the process for developing sprint

plans for your Agile project.

After this one-hour session, learners will be able to:

  • Define what a release plan is and how it should be developed
  • Establish the sprint plan process to develop the Sprint Backlog
