An effective and rapid planning technique, for the agile age. Also known as a “Project Planning Jam Session.”
Representatives from the client or sponsor side, the business side, development, UX, security, ops - any and every group that will have to participate in the project, work together with index cards to visibly draw out a storyboard of the project.
Using up to 80-120 cards and a few hours to a full day, they map out the work to be done, the dependencies, the timeline, the foreseen difficulties, and together, find the best path possible.
They add sharp focus on getting a walking prototype of the architecture, the first visible results, and the first point of real value delivered.
This workshop is for anyone in any field that plays a role in project development. As the methodologies of project development are constantly updated, everyone can take something away from this fun and interactive approach to project planning and development.
I once taught a class of over 150 people for a company built on Scrum-CSM,. After the workshop, several key people suddenly showed up in my Blitz Planning workshop. I asked why they were there after I had taught it to their entire development department.
They said, "We weren't really listening, because we didn't think agile projects needed planning. But we finally got tired of getting hurt by things showing up later in the project that really were foreseeable. So, we're here to learn this time."
