WHY THIS WEBINAR:

Even with the just-enough planning mindset, agile initiatives require estimation work so that the iteration and release planning can happen. The backlog has to be at a state where the estimation can be done. The top-down and bottom-up approaches take a different form in the agile approach with the introduction of story points. This webinar will address some of these approaches and questions so that you can apply the estimation techniques.

The webinar will discuss:

  1. Types of estimations
  2. Techniques used in agile estimation
  3. Responsibilities in backlog grooming versus iteration planning
  4. A brief intro to some tools or games
  5. Thoughts behind mixed methodologies
