Agile Planning and Estimation

Be able to best plan an agile project, the differences between the various levels of project planning, and useful tools to aid in the planning.

Description

Planning in agile projects differs from waterfall projects or other more traditional projects in the aspect of adapting to the needs and expectations of the stakeholders and the product development in a flexible manner. Additionally estimating the work, effort, and time activities will take during a project is a very challenging exercise. This course examines how to best plan an agile project and aims to explore those differences, the strategies at play in agile estimation, and the various tools and techniques any agile practitioner — whether that be an agile project manager, agile coach, ScrumMaster, or agile development team member — should be aware of.
