Adaptive Planning: Gain Predictability in Agile Environment – Mission Possible
One of the biggest challenges Agile teams encounter is the ability to plan forward. This leads to problems with prediction of the work completion and management of stakeholder expectations. As Agile software development welcomes changes even late in development, there is a widespread misconception that predictability is not possible in Agile environment. This is wrong. Plans could be worthless, but planning is everything.
What activities are related to the Agile planning? Who is responsible for doing these activities? What tools and techniques are used in the Agile planning? What metrics could Agile teams use to gain predictability? Is it possible for an Agile team to predict when a list of requirements will be implemented? The short answer is Yes - it is not easy, but it is possible. Using the right tools and setting the right attitude in people, the mission is possible.
Teodora has been in the software industry for 15 years – she started as a developer and went through almost all roles involved in software project implementation. As a project manager, Teodora has successfully applied both Agile and Waterfall methodologies.
In her workshops Teodora uses an interactive approach for learning by doing. Apart from just sharing knowledge and going through pre-defined examples, she always engages the participants in activities with scenarios from their real-life experience. Applying the acquired knowledge and skills to known situations and scenarios during the workshop has proven to be a very effective way for deeper understanding and stronger engagement with the topics. This also leads to participants feeling more confident and being more effective in applying the knowledge and skills back at their workplace.
Teodora is a certified PMP®, PMI-ACP® and PSM®.
