On a software project, uncertainty is certain. The customer will change their mind, a 'must have' feature will be discovered, deadlines will move, or an unexpected competitive threat will need to be countered. The agile approach to project management allows the team to easily adjust to these changing conditions in order to produce the most valuable software possible.
This two-day experiential workshop teaches the fundamentals of agile project management, and is recommended for everyone who will be involved in an agile project. We will explore the key roles, responsibilities, interactions, and processes that make a successful agile project happen.
Participants will learn:
* Release planning
* The rhythm of iterative development and delivery
* The flow of deliverables
* Roles and responsibilities
* Communication on an agile team
* Empirical process control
* Agile metrics
* Simple tools for managing agile projects
The workshop focuses on practical 'how to' skill development, while providing enough theory so that participants will understand why the techniques work. Interactive exercises allow participants to learn by doing. Class notes, suggestions for further reading, and free follow-on consulting are all included to ensure that the workshop's lessons can be effectively applied back in the 'real world'.

Hi All,I am assisiting teams formally define scrum processes in my organziation.I myself come from traditional process background.
I was wondering how project initiation gels with pre-gaming phase.My understanding is :Pre-Gaming may involve:
• Project initiation : Scrum Team charter (something like : Integrated team charter for local and distributed teams) may be an evidence
to be produced here
• Project Planning : Release plan may be an evidence here that team is supposed to deliver
• Evolution of product backlog based on the architecture
Saying so, Can we say high level estimation of requirements is done at product backlog level by product owner.
While the detailed level estimation is done at user story level in sprint where user stroy is broken to simplest level task
(ranging from 4 to 16 hours)Looking for suggestions/expert opinion here.
I have seen couple of sites, but I still do not have a clear picture.(scrumalliance, mountaingoatsoftware)Regards,Vikas
