Release Planning (The Small Card Game): Discover What Works
This tutorial, the “small card game”, is a simulation game introducing the concepts of Agile planning, story value, and story cost. Learn to manage scope and optimize return on investment. The students practice planning a project with varying levels of information about the features needed, and experience how “nature” deals with their plan. Again, very appropriate for all team members, in-house customers, marketing, and management, to learn how the process works and what their part in it is.
We like to present this session every other year or so.
This is a highly interactive session.
- Management value of short iterations
- The importance of even simple cost estimates
- The impact of value sorting on project outcome
