Sprint Planning: Wait, I thought Agile Means No Planning?

Presenters: Leigh Ann Gunther, David Betancourt, & Special Guest

Among the most common misnomers about Agile Frameworks are that Agile Teams don't plan and don't do documentation.  One could argue that Agile Teams practicing Scrum or some hybrid therein plan incessantly and perhaps even more than Traditional Project Management.  Scrum Teams plan work increments in short iterative Sprints that could range in time from four weeks to one week.  Product Owners constantly plan, prune, and prioritize Backlog Artifacts, handily putting that misconception around documentation to bed.  Finally, every day in the Standup Event, the Scrum Team plans what they will do that day to contribute towards making the Sprint Commitment.

Planning in Scrum is so important that there is an event named after it; Sprint Planning.  Scrum Teams constantly plan and refine what goes into the Sprint and what is being done to achieve the Sprint Goal.  How does all of this planning coalesce into one event?  What mechanics drive an efficient and effective Sprint Planning session?

Join Leigh Ann Gunther and David Betancourt on Tuesday, May 17th (Zoom link will open at 6:45pm) as they outline the components and planning process for a successful Sprint Planning event.  Together they will leverage their almost 40 years of combined Agile experience to deliver the theory and mechanics of Sprint Planning.  Finally, Ryan McGonigle, a seasoned Agilist and Project Manager, will join in the conversation to share his experiences and help Leigh Ann and David walk the participants through a Sprint Planning Case Study.
