Release Planning Overview:

Effective release planning is an essential skill set that all Product Owners must have to realize the full potential of Scrum. Company leadership should also understand release planning to know what to expect, and how to work well with Teams. Unfortunately many POs don’t fully understand release planning, leading to unpleasant last-minute surprises, conflict with Leadership and the Team, and potential value left on the table.

This course covers the key skills and tools for managing tradeoffs of time, scope and resources. The concepts are presented using several different approaches to planning product releases in Scrum and will give you immediately actionable ideas you can implement the same day.
