You work for a company that until now has been delivering projects following Waterfall. Your new project is asked to be delivered in an Agile way. You know some basics on what Agile is, the need for frequent deliveries, focus on value, self-organizing teams where people collaborate, empirical planning, etc. What now? Where do you begin with your very first Agile project? What to do to get things going and deliver fast?
I will bring my experience on different Enterprise environments and the approach I have taken when working with teams new to Agile development. How Agile transformation was applied in the organization and how was translated at the project level. Some of the tools and techniques I will talk about are Project Canvas, Value Stream mapping, Story mapping, etc. Through a workshop, participants will have an opportunity to learn how to apply these tools and techniques right away to their Agile projects. These tools and techniques are valuable even for teams that are already running Agile and want to find ways to improve.
This is a hands on workshop that will take you through the different steps of initiation, preparation and getting ready for Sprint 1. You will experience how to do just-enough planning, estimation, architecture and feel confident to deliver value on Sprint 1. You will gain knowledge and experience that you can take it to your teams right away. This is knowledge that you can use when you start a new project or a new release. You will work on some real project, but feel free to bring your project and plan it with us!
