Full Description

Agile software definition and delivery is a collaborative effort between the team and the Product Managers (PM) and Product Owners (PO). This workshop provides a Lean-Agile overview and covers requirement workflow from inception to completion. This workflow includes breaking down requirements from very large chunks (vision) at the portfolio level through to very small slices that are ready to be developed by the Agile teams.

Lean-Agile involves a shift in paradigm. To realize business benefit, Product Managers and Product Owners must collaborate with their development partners and steer the requirements prioritization toward achieving successful product outcomes. This workshop covers the prioritization of requirements at each level. Participants will understand the process of continuous refinement of requirements with inputs from the team and customer
