Planning & Estimation for Hybrid Agile Teams
Team-Level Agile Planning
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 planning and estimation work in agile development work efforts, and gain the skills to plan and estimate, not for the number, but for the team understanding that planning and estimating generate.
Great hybrid agile teams master these skills
You’ll learn them all in Team-Level Agile Planning and why they’re important. Once these skills are benefitting your teams, you can learn how to support planning and estimation for people outside the team in the Planning Across the Agile Boundary program.
