Talk: Power Up Your Agile Planning and Analysis: Deliver Value Via Structured Conversations

For continual value delivery, stakeholders must partner to develop a shared understanding of the product needs. How does this partnership gain a focused yet holistic understanding of the highest-value requirements? How do they effectively plan the project so that the delivery team builds the right product, at the right time? Learn how to go beyond user stories and engage in “structured conversations” to explore and evaluate product requirements and clearly identify what to build and when. You’ll use these conversations to fuel your daily work, groom your backlog, and quickly analyze requirements and allocate them to delivery cycles.
