Setting goals to agile teams
Shifting from requirements towards business goals
Moderator: Zoltán Csutorás
Agile and lean frameworks can boost productivity of organizations. There is one key point many managers forget when transitioning to agile: the main source of the power of agile methods is the creativity and motivation of team members. Traditional upfront requirements based project management can block both of these factors. The aim of this course is to learn how to apply modern requirements management principles to facilitate team creativity and maximizing the value delivered by development projects.
The course is driven by an interactive presentation focusing on the following topics. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions.
- How to manage agile project stakeholders? how to build an agile project team? Who is the Product Owner?
