Next, you’ll discover the role of release planning and backlog management in ensuring team efforts are best allocated at any given moment. Finally, you’ll explore how to measure your success in coordinating team action and how to continuously improve on your approach to planning in an Agile setting. By the end of this course, you’ll develop an appreciation for the role of planning in Agile projects, and better understand how to set your Agile team up for success.

Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Casey Ayers and welcome to my course, Planning in Agile Environments. Agile teams embrace uncertainty and the ability to quickly adjust to changing environments. But that doesn't mean planning has no role to play in their success. Rather, the most effective agile teams are the ones that can harness thoughtful preparation to facilitate their ability to adapt to change. In this course, Planning in Agile Environments, you'll first learn how agile teams organize their work to achieve objectives. Then you'll learn about the role of release planning and backlog management in ensuring that team efforts are best allocated at any given moment. After that, you'll learn how to measure your success in coordinating team action, and how to continuously improve on your approach to planning in an agile setting. By the end of this course, you'll develop an appreciation for the role of planning in agile projects and better understand how to set your agile team up for success. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with some of the principles of project management in order to better relate to the material that we'll discuss. This course is part of our series here at Pluralsight on project management skills, which can help you prepare for the PMP and other certification exams, as well as earning continuing education credit towards such certifications. It's also part of our series helping leaders guide their teams through agile transformation efforts. It could be a great resource for you, even if you're just looking to learn more about managing agile projects. I hope you'll join me to learn how you can integrate agile practices and savvy preparation to generate effective results with Planning in Agile environments, here at Pluralsight.
