Planning and Monitoring Iterations in Agile Projects

Description

Agile projects are characterized by the use of short work iterations and incremental development of products, made possible by focusing on business priorities and customer value. This course focuses on the activities performed during the planning and execution of a project iteration, or sprint. During release planning—the previous phase in the overall agile planning process—the team creates an ordered list of project features in the form of the product backlog. Iteration planning is the process of creating an iteration (sprint) backlog that contains more specific detail regarding work items that have been assigned to the upcoming iteration. This course provides a look at the iteration planning process and the creation of the iteration backlog. It also explores how to create a schedule and use principles of buffering. The course goes on to cover key tools and methods used by agile teams to monitor and report project progress, both at the iteration level and at the overall project or release level. It also covers agile risk management, testing quality processes and continuous integration.
