Course content

The agile manifesto and its principles guide us in our project activities. This chapter translates these values into usable practices.

User Stories are used in most agile projects. We’ll take a look at why they’re there and how they usually look.

Most of the workshop is devoted to this chapter, which answers the following questions: How do you break down stories? how to visualize workflows? how to manage development tactically? how to optimize for value?

User stories are integrated into overall product management. Here, we’ll look at techniques that are effective for managing the requirements list or Product Backlog in the context of Scrum.

The group exercises proposed in the course will help you to understand and quickly face the challenge that awaits you when you return to your workplace.
