This 2-day course will teach you how to go agile and do analysis in agile

Duration

2 days

Overview

Learning how to go agile and do analysis in agile is one thing (hopefully, you took our 'Advance Agile Analysis'), but scaling agile in a medium to large organization is another effort entirely. As simple as the agile methodology wants to be, it can get complicated when you bring multiple teams into the mix. The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a specific approach to scaling and structuring agile by helping teams manage dependencies and risk through coordination and communication at the program and portfolio level.

Outcome

  1. Understand how different agile environments impact roles, planning, and ceremonies for SAFe
  2. Review the top-down hierarchy of managing value with emphasis on the portfolio and program
  3. Align analysis techniques with each stage and step in the SAFe framework
  4. Understand how to best facilitate communication among the SAFe stakeholders (i.e. portfolio managers, product managers, product owners, scrum masters, special services, release managers)
  5. Develop portfolio initiatives, epics, themes, features, and capabilities for the purposes of building the right solution and tracing value
  6. Apply elicitation and analysis to help make the best decisions at the portfolio and program level
  7. Outline the role analysis plays in managing, estimating, and prioritizing the portfolio and release plan
  8. Identify and negotiate the factors associated with ready and done
  9. Practice portfolio and release planning using case studies and mock exercises
  10. Effectively establish a triage approach to manage the flow of new initiatives
  11. Identify how a portfolio or program level analyst helps manage changing needs
