Vision to Value: Backlog Refinement Practitioner –a 2-day Course

So I can guide and collaborate with the agile team, I need to use techniques for agile planning, analysis, and product delivery.

Delivering high-value products requires teams to collaboratively discover the right product to deliver at the right time. Yet, teams struggle with this journey, wrestling with bloated backlogs, ineffective or inconsistent planning, and unpredictable Sprint flow.

In the Backlog Refinement Practitioner training, you learn how to improve product agility and team outcomes through precise and transparent development of “ready” backlog items. You define and refine backlog items across the 7 Product Dimensions, prioritize user stories, and prepare for value-based planning. By using the product’s vision to drive Structured Conversations, you optimize the value in the product backlog, exemplifying the core of Lean and Agile practices.
