Agile Requirements Development Workshop

Custom Team Workshop on Producing Agile Requirements – Story Mapping, Epics, Product Backlog

Agile Requirements Workshop Summary

Every team and organization is different and deals with different roadblocks while working through the scrum process. One common roadblock teams face is producing or planning the requirements of the Product Backlog. Our coaches get your teams to understand how requirements fit into the scrum process, how to produce and plan requirements and how to scale large requirements. In Scrum and Agile projects, User Stories commonly represent requirements and are written from the perspective of the system user or purchaser. This workshop will teach your Product Owners how to write effective User Stories and how to prioritize them. Our coaches get your scrum teams working effectively by utilizing lecture based training, exercises and hands on coaching and mentoring.
