The Collaboration Game: Time-tested Techniques for Agile Release Planning

Andrew Lindsay

This might sound familiar: you have a highly productive Agile development team. Your organization has a wealth of stakeholders with competing interests. Your ScrumMaster and your Product Owner keep things rolling smoothly day-to-day but things tend to fall apart when it comes to longer term strategic discussions and release planning with respect to the needs of stakeholder X vs stakeholder Y.

Join me for a discussion of effective strategies that can be employed to turn difficult competitive planning sessions into productive and collaborative release planning adventures! Let's fire up the fun machine and work it all out together--everybody wins when we play the 100 dollar game and some business value poker.
