Summary

This 2-day course, taught as an educational workshop, will provide systems engineers, software engineers, and project/program managers with specific tools and techniques they can immediately apply in current and modern Agile (Scrum) Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Application Development Lifecycle Management (ADLM) projects. Emphasis will be placed on, “Getting It Right, Right From the Start”. Participants will learn and practice Lean Method process steps for collaboratively developing the initial Product Backlog Item (PBI) set (i.e., initial Work Items) for Agile (Scrum) ALM/ADLM projects.

  • Review of Agile (Scrum) methodologies.
  • Basic information about Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and Application Development Lifecycle Management (ADLM) projects.
  • Current news about Agile (Scrum) ALM/ADLM contracts.
  • How to assess project resources for ‘T-Shaped People’ needed for Agile (Scrum) ALM/ADLM projects.
  • Fundamentals of Lean Methods.
  • How to apply Lean Methods to develop the initial Product Backlog Item (PBI) set for Agile (Scrum) ALM/ADLM projects.
