Value Mapping, Strategic Alignment and Date Forecasting

Morning: Value Mapping

Learn how to utilize value mapping grids to help make sure your teams are focused on the items which maximize value delivery and work to eliminate working on those items that delivery little or no strategic value yet consume tremendous amounts of time. You should come prepared to discuss what the value is that you are providing with the project. We will then dive down into feature sets and requirements, evaluating the contribution of each item to value then creating grids to help layout your development roadmaps. At the end of the day you should have a first draft roadmap that directly ties to strategic value. And of course we will work all this using The IT Factory software. Works great for both agile or traditional development teams.

Afternoon: Date Forecasting

Learn how to create real-time date forecasts, no more long, drawn out project plans that are more fiction than reality. As you discover new requirements or a team increases their efficiency levels, make a quick update in The IT Factory and see the results on your forecast. You should come prepared to look at a project and feature sets, we’ll work through the rest. You’ll learn how to effectively use cycle time (what it is and why it should be one of your key indicators you monitor) and if you have completed the Value Mapping workshop you will see how to forecast the dates VALUE will be delivered rather than product releases. Imagine being able to say in three months we will be decreasing our operating costs by 10% and having real time data to back it up.

Plus receive 60 days of access to our IT Factory Software (a $200 value) so you can use what you do back at the office.
