Properly estimating activities and effective time and resource management are critical when planning projects. In this course, you'll explore common Agile estimation techniques used when managing projects, like story points and ideal days, identifying any adjustments that need to be made, and completing your release plan. You'll explore setting work in progress limits and implementing project buffers. This course also covers recommended project time management processes for monitoring and tracking progress at both the iteration and project levels. Finally, you'll learn about key Agile exam concepts such as muda or waste, the Kanban system, work in progress, Little's Law, and process cycle efficiency.
