One of the dilemmas most Agile teams face is how to generate an initial backlog.

The best way to do this is by assembling a cross-functional team and using facilitated storytelling to generate a set of scenarios, which are then decomposed into features, epics, and user stories using standard grooming techniques.

This process not only provides the team with the information needed to create user stories, but also provides context for what is being built.

Join Tony and Tom to learn how this process works, how it can implemented in your organization, and to what benefit!

So you’ve gone Agile, so that means that you no longer have to create comprehensive requirements documents, right?

Remember the agile manifesto says that the goal is “working software over comprehensive documentation.”

So because of that, we can’t be nimble if we take the time to put together the documentation, right?

WRONG!

This month, PROJECTinsight is going to give the real story about requirements in an Agile environment.

Requirements gathering and documentation doesn’t have to look the way it has always looked, but it must have some key elements. Learn how to foster creativity, yet communicate clearly how a change needs to be implemented.

In Part II of this session,  PROJECTinsight will have their experts at Core Performance Concepts  give feedback on the submissions and talk more about creative ways to capture and retain requirements in an agile environment, enabling organizations to be nimble in their development cycles.
