Have you or your Agile teams had trouble refining requirements on an Agile project? Are your teams struggling with user stories and tasks that are too large for them to handle well? If so, you and your teams need more guidance to implement backlog / user story grooming. Backlog grooming is a step-by-step process of taking high-level (“coarse-grained”) requirements and refining them to lower-level user stories and tasks (“fine-level”) that are ready to put into a sprint. In RefineM’s Backlog/Story Grooming presentation, attendees will learn how to work the process to achieve fine-grained requirements that are ready just in time. The key to success is leveraging tools and techniques as well as the expertise of your team to refine requirements iteratively.

January 15, 2019 | 55:33 | Views: 5,517 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.45 / 5

Project managers face two competing imperatives, 1) to be as fast and efficient as possible, and 2) to improve what you do and how you do it. The first one is about being on budget, on time and on target. The second one is about doing that better than you did it last time, perhaps radically better. In other words innovating the products you develop and the processes you use to do that. In this webinar you will learn a simple intuitive framework—a mindset—for thinking about your work, that enables that innovation. A switch that will make you and your team more adaptive, resilient and resourceful, as you enhance rather than compromise your efficiency.

So what does it actually mean to manage an agile project? What does it take to get acceptance and adoption, and to introduce the practices to an organization?

Or is it necessary to adopt agile wholesale, and fend off attempts to water it down? In this presentation, Mark Mullaly explores the agile phenomenon: where it came from, what it is meant to do, and how to best make it work. Whether you are trying to make it work, or just want to find out more about what it's about, be sure to tune in as we try to deftly explore the agile phenomenon.
