About the Webinar
As organizations move from a traditional waterfall methodology to Agile; a question that is often asked is, "How do I begin to adapt from my current process documentation to an Agile approach?" This webinar will explain how you can apply Agile documentation practices side by side with traditional documentation methods. The two life-cycle methods, as they relate to documents, will be compared and contrasted. You will receive practical guidance for project documentation, where a blend of both traditional waterfall and Agile projects may exist. The big question to be addressed is, "How does the documentation compare and how do I become more Agile?"
This webinar will highlight and examine methods to prepare documentation for Agile projects when transitioning from waterfall to Agile, including:
• Parallel worlds: Agile and waterfall - documentation comparisons
• Moving to iteration-oriented development - Five levels of Agile planning
• A deeper look at Agile documentation
• Iteration zero - what kind of documentation?
• Agile documentation recommendations
