#RSGI14 – 50d: Gamifying the Release Planning and Estimation

Image

Let’s face it. Estimation is a difficult beast to deal with, more so on an agile project specifically, when talking at the release level. Features are needed to scale, because it’s too difficult to manage large programs with just user stories. Release planning becomes too detailed if you don’t have a middle tier of features representing what you’re trying to build.

Does this happen with your software releases too???

Presenting:

Gamifying the Release Planning and Estimation

Presenter: Ms Savita Pahuja

To understand how you can solve the challenges faced during Agile Release Planning, How to estimate Epics, Features and Stories and to learn the all new concept of “Feature Points” join our speaker Savita Pahuja as she takes you through a fun, gaming session on Agile Release Planning and Estimation

Regional Scrum Gathering India 2014 is convening on 11th and 12th July 2014 at The Trident, Hyderabad.
