Product and Program Management

Workshop Overview

Duration:
1 to 2 Days (Customizable)

Pre-Requisite:
Any 2 day introduction to Agile such as Agile Whole Team Training

Certification:
None, Continuing Education Learning Credits (PDUs or SEUs) available

The workshop provides participants with an opportunity to gain experience with typical Agile Project activities using one of your real projects facilitated by an experienced Agile Coach.

The workshop can be used as the initial work to prepare for starting a new Agile team or project or it can be used to learn new Agile techniques while taking a fresh look at an in-flight project. The workshop can also be used with a project that is being considered but not yet funded to flesh out the vision and create estimates that can help with the funding decision.

Depending on the nature and scope of the project, the artifacts produced during the workshop may be sufficient to create a backlog that could be used to actually start an Agile project. If you are planning to use the deliverables from this workshop to start an Agile project, additional backlog grooming and planning may be required. The next steps are up to you. You can either engage an Agile Coach or use the experience gained in the workshop to continue the process on your own.
