Webinar Series: The Gaps in Your Agile Methodology No One Talks About

Part 1: Introduction

For the last 20+ years we’ve all been diligently working to agile our way to product success. Indeed, developing iteratively and applying agile methodologies has helped our industry make huge strides. At times, however, It has also led us to focus on the wrong things…

In this webinar we’ll discuss how inherent gaps in common agile methodologies have led to poor product strategy, flawed definition, and ultimately, subpar execution.

We will highlight these gaps, hear real life stories of their impacts on organizations, and learn how to avoid falling into these traps when developing our products.




Part 2: Getting from an Idea to Actionable Backlog

So, your boss instructed you to “just write all the stories,” but you have very little to start with beyond a vague idea or a bullet point on a slide. How do you get from this humble beginning to those brilliant, right-sized stories that can be handed off to your developers?

Illustrated via real-life examples, Anne Steiner demonstrates concrete steps for filling the gaps between idea and high quality stories. Not only will you have your stories but, more importantly, you’ll have insightful discovery conversations that lead to deeper and more meaningful product understanding!




Part 3: Managing your Backlog

Is the sprint-to-sprint grind of having to complete endless stream of user stories wearing you down? Are you so mired in the minutia of stories that you can’t even remember what it is you’re building anymore? Has your backlog turned into a glorified “to do” list filled with an countless developer tasks? It’s time to stop the madness! Join Anne Steiner, Vice President of Product Agility at cPrime, for the last instalment of our 3-part webinar series on creating and managing effective and meaningful product backlogs. In this session, we’ll provide practical tips and guidance on managing sprint-to-sprint backlog definition, blending product discovery with product delivery, and recreating your product backlog as a vehicle for telling winning product stories versus a container for crud.
