Adaptive planning

180 BGN 3 hours and 30 mins

One of the most pressing questions regarding Agile is - whether and to what extent Agile teams plan? Short answer - Yes, they plan. They mastermind short-term actions and plan for the longer term as well. The only difference with traditional proxies is that Agile teams use different techniques that help them integrate changes quickly into their schedule and see how it will differ.

This practical workshop will show you how to make realistic project plans and how to communicate progress to management and stakeholders. You will learn useful techniques and tools that could be applied from now on to make your work more successful.
