    I like these aspects of the submission, and they should be retained:

    • The hands-on exercise

    I think the submission could be improved by:

    • I am just mindful of the timings If you could call out how long would you take to spend on each of the items you listed that would give some more clarity. (Especially  about 6 Sprints)

      Hi Bhupal Rathod,

      Thanks for your comments and looking the contents of this hands on workshop. 

      • How your workshop help in increase awareness in product agility?

      Product Agility is achieved by understanding the product strategies, product release strategies & life cycle of product, connecting the dots in these areas to deliver the winning product, which will be covered during the workshop. 

      • Do you have any findings from industry with the techniques you are going to propose in workshop?

      This workshop is more of self-discovery exercise to the audience to reflect on their product release strategies. This primary focus of this workshop in the limited time period is to understand different strategies for releases of the product, looking at different constraints.

      I shall keep your points in mind and from now to conference (if this is selected) I shall add more information during the session.
