Course Objectives:Preparing estimates is not an area of project planning that many people really enjoy. That is, until they learn to do it the agile way. This course focuses on the heart of release planning: creating estimates and prioritizing requirements. You will learn common agile methods for estimating the size of user stories, such as planning poker, and guidelines for splitting and combining user stories. Along with estimating, another key task during release planning is prioritizing user stories to create the project backlog. You will learn the MoSCoW technique for prioritizing user stories, as well as the more sophisticated prioritization tools: the priority matrix and the Kano model of customer satisfaction. You will also learn about a visual 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. The first part of the 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 second section of the course covers 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. This course is intended for project managers, program managers, or anyone who wants to efficiently participate in agile projects. It is aligned with the Agile Certified Practitioner exam objectives developed by Project Management Institute® and Certified ScrumMaster learning objectives. By the end of the course, you should:

•describe activities that take place during an iteration planning meeting
•identify the outputs of the iteration planning meeting
•recognize the steps for creating an iteration backlog
•calculate the buffer for a given set of project tasks
•identify appropriate actions to take when planning iterations for a complex project
•create an iteration backlog for a given project
•create an iteration schedule that includes appropriate buffers
•recognize how tools are used to monitor progress during an iteration
•identify project information that should be updated in a release plan
•interpret project release information using various types of charts
•use charts to monitor and report progress during an iteration
•use charts to report release status
