In this workshop, students will learn to develop requirements which enable an Agile team to deliver valuable products. We will discuss how Agile principles and the Scrum framework emphasize business and team collaboration while providing clarity and focus. Next, we will explore principles and techniques used to develop a product backlog in an Agile environment. One such technique, User Stories, improve our products by maximizing return on investment and speed of delivery. These concepts will be presented in a highly interactive and engaging format with elements of lecture, classroom discussion, and detailed simulation.
Students can claim 7 Project Management Institute (PMI) Professional Development Units (PDUs) which can be applied to Project Management Professional (PMP) and PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) certifications.
