Agile and Scrum 2021 attendees receive complimentary access to two online courses:

Agile Release Plans

While many Agile frameworks provide guidance on a focus on value and iterative development, many do not explain how that value is delivered to the customer. Release Plans have become an accepted and common practice to bridge the gap between the Product Vision and the Product Backlog (Agile requirements).

The goal of this course is to equip you with the necessary knowledge, skills, and techniques to build Release Plans to ensure you deliver the most value to your customers.

At the end of this program, you will be able to:

  • Recall the Scrum framework elements (roles, events, and artifacts)
  • Examine the benefits of Agile
  • Develop a Product Vision and Roadmap
  • Create an Agile Project Charter
  • Prepare a Release Plan
  • Write user stories to support a Product Backlog

 

Your Instructor:
Jeffrey Nielsen, PMP, PgMP, PMI-RMP, PMI-ACP, CSM and Scrum Fundamentals

 

 


Introduction to Agile for Executives

This session provides executives with an overview of Agile values and principles, the key benefits of an Agile approach, and its differences with the traditional Waterfall method.

During the session, we compare and contrast the major Agile methods, with an emphasis on Scrum, as the most popular in the market. And most importantly, we present some criteria for Agile Transformation, possible certifications to pursue, and what is needed at the senior leadership level to achieve the best business results.

At the end of this program, you will be able to:

  • Explain the basics and benefits of using an Agile approach
  • Describe the Scrum framework, its events, artifacts, and roles and responsibilities
  • Illustrate an Agile approach outside of Software Development
  • Define Scaled Agile
  • Determine how to support an Agile transformation for your organization
