PRIORITIZING PRODUCT FEATURES BY RELATIVE COST.
If you have more features in your product than can possibly be developed by the release date, you'll want to make sure that the most valuable features are developed first. One possible approach is to prioritize the features in "bang for the buck" order. But assessing the relative profitability of features can be difficult.
This interactive workshop and group discussion explores methods for calculating the relative costs of individual features, in order to make feature prioritization simple and manageable.
EXPERIENCE THE RHYTHM, FLOW AND MECHANICS OF SCRUM.
All Scrum projects share a set of events that occur on a regular cadence. If you've never worked on a Scrum team before, or if your Scrum project doesn't seem to have a smooth and natural flow, this session will let you experience and explore those things that all Scrum projects have in common.
This hands-on workshop is designed to let you experience the rhythm and flow of backlog grooming, sprint planning, development, sprint review and sprint retrospective through several sprints.
