Be honest. Are you confident that your sprint will go according to plan? You might be wrong.
Sprint planning is important for the success of any project. However, we all know it’s a good idea. It’s difficult to get it right because we are trying to reduce ambiguity, align with our team, and try to reach some sort of agreement. This is always tricky.
How can you get your sprints started right? It’s our job as PMs to make sure this happens. But how do we do it? This podcast will help you plan an agile effectively. Keep listening to the podcast to learn how to get your sprint off to a good start.
