Planning & Estimation for Hybrid Agile Teams
Planning Across the Agile Boundary
Agile development teams in hybrid environments (agile + sequential; software + hardware) are being called on to create more plans and do more estimation than in a pure agile development environment. Learn how teams can plan and estimate for people outside of the team to appropriately set expectations and manage commitments. Also, learn how to translate what the agile team is doing into language that works across the hybrid organization.
