Just and FYI for you guys. This Monday (August 22nd, 12:oo EDT) I’m doing a reprise of my Agile2011 talk “Introduction to Agile Planning and Project Management” for the PMI Community of Practice. If you are a PMI member and want to check me out live… you can get more information on the webinar at the PMI website.
Introduction to Agile Project Planning and Project Management
If you aren’t a member of PMI… stay tuned to LeadingAgile. I am going to do shortened YouTube versions of both my Agile2011 talks over the next few weeks.
Agile introduces a number of tools and techniques designed to help the team figure out how much software we can build for the time we have, and the amount of money our customer is willing to spend. This talk will introduce the fundamental concepts necessary to break down and estimate our product backlog, how to organize delivery of that backlog for early risk reduction and rapid customer feedback, and how to get stable throughput and predictability as you mature your agile practices. This talk is for those looking to understand how (and why) agile methods lead to better business outcomes.
