AGILE ESTIMATING & PLANNING

Plan agile projects – estimate resource and time requirements!
The online course.

Especially in the planning and estimation phase, there tends to be frustration within agile project teams. In this course you will have the opportunity to build up a comprehensive and in-depth knowledge of agile planning and estimation methods. Together we discuss the meaning of “just enough” in the context of requirements, scope, design and planning.

This course is aimed equally at managers, programmers and testers, i.e. anyone involved in the estimation of a software development project. As a course participant, you should already have basic knowledge and a minimum of experience in the field of agile project management. Learn more about proven planning techniques in agile projects and increase your project’s chances of success!

This training is also available as an open class and as in-house training. We are happy to put together individual modules and customized content in consultation with you. For further information and individual discussions, please do not hesitate to contact us personally.

YOUR BENEFIT FROM AGILE ESTIMATING & PLANNING

By presenting and explaining practical examples and procedures, participants will have the opportunity to deal with and discuss these issues in a practical manner. We cover the six planning levels: strategy, portfolio, roadmap, release, iteration and the daily meeting.

Through agile estimation, you learn to deal with the constantly challenging questions that plague every development team: “What do these features cost?” – “When will we be ready?”

OUR PRACTICE-ORIENTED TRAINING METHOD

Lectures, discussions, exchange of experiences, case studies.

In our practice-oriented training courses, no points should remain unaddressed. That’s why we always clarify the “WHAT – HOW – WHY” questions in our training sessions.
