Maximising value delivered in Agile

Scrum and Agile development are fond of proclamations mandating business value maximisation but, maximising by value is easier said than done. Every Product Owner knows they should prioritise-by-value – how many do?

  • Learn how to put value on user stories and epics with incomplete data
  • Learn how to prioritise and schedule stories based on value
  • Understand how cost-of-delay changes value over time and how to model the change with time-value profiles

A half-day (3½ hours) online workshop for Product Owners (including Product Managers and Business Analysts), Scrum Masters, and others involved in the “what should we do next?” decision. Maximising Value, full synopsis (PDF)
