My recent Øredev presentation, "Agile Release Planning from Top to
Bottom," was recorded and the video is now available online. This
presentation was very well received and I think it's one of the best
I've given recently. Watch it here.
Stories, epics, minimum marketable features, kanban, iterations, story
points, burn-up charts... the cacophony of Agile planning terms is
enough to drive anyone crazy! In this session, James Shore silences the
noise with a straightforward description of the breadth of Agile release
planning. From discovering value to making commitments, this session
covers everything you need to know to plan beyond the next iteration.
