This session will detail the process of moving away from a 'classic' scrum based approach to planning (by using release planning, iteration planning, story points estimation using planning poker, etc) to an alternative method that uses a no estimate based approach.
It will cover techniques that enable transitioning to this approach, such as: how to define work in progress, how to monitor throughput and ageing items, replenishment and right sizing as well as the use of Monte Carlo simulations for forecasting.
The techniques are based on Daniel Vacanti's Actionable Agile Metrics for Predictability, and the session will include practical examples of how they have been applied at a major UK client.
