One of the most pressing questions regarding Agile is - whether and to what extent Agile teams plan? Short answer - Yes, they plan. They mastermind short-term actions and plan for the longer term as well. The only difference with traditional proxies is that Agile teams use different techniques that help them integrate changes quickly into their schedule and see how it will differ.
This practical workshop will show you how to make realistic project plans and how to communicate progress to management and stakeholders. You will learn useful techniques and tools that could be applied from now on to make your work more successful.
Teodora has been in the software industry for 15 years – she started as a developer and went through almost all roles involved in software project implementation. As a project manager, Teodora has successfully applied both Agile and Waterfall methodologies.
In her workshops Teodora uses an interactive approach for learning by doing. Apart from just sharing knowledge and going through pre-defined examples, she always engages the participants in activities with scenarios from their real-life experience. Applying the acquired knowledge and skills to known situations and scenarios during the workshop has proven to be a very effective way for deeper understanding and stronger engagement with the topics. This also leads to participants feeling more confident and being more effective in applying the knowledge and skills back at their workplace.
Teodora is a certified PMP®, PMI-ACP® and PSM®.
