This 2 day instructor led course is an applied workshop with hands on practice, in your environment, to create a backlog from product vision concept to first sprint.
This course will teach how to envision a product and drive out good requirements that can be prioritized to reduce project risk and maximize return on investment. The course will start from the beginning of a business need and derive the project vision, roadmap, release plan, and sprint-ready requirements in the form of user stories. Vertical slicing, prioritization, estimation and right-sizing requirements will be thoroughly practiced through a series of exercises. Common pitfalls and techniques to avoid those pitfalls will be thoroughly explored with multiple hands on exercises. The objective of this class is to train you to be effective and maximize ROI for an agile Scrum project.
The use of agile as an approach to managing projects has been increasing dramatically over the last several years. Gartner predicts that by the end of 2012, agile development methods will be used on 80% of all software development projects. PMI`s research has shown that the use of agile has tripled from December 2008 to May 2012.
Over and over, students in various agile courses have said that the most difficult thing after scrum training is determining the right level for user stories and creating an actionable product backlog. This workshop directly addresses that issue with practice from product vision to prioritized backlog – in your environment for private classes and a canned exercise for public courses.
