Do you struggle with releases?
Some of the hardest Stakeholder questions Agile teams face are “what are you building?” And “by when?”. Many teams struggle to balance the immediate “release planning” needs of stakeholders, with the longer-term “release management” needs of the company.
Release management is a long-term endeavor. It’s not just about tools & techniques, or meeting immediate deadlines. It demands an evolution of release culture and infrastructure. And this takes time. But the first step you can take is to audit the current state of release management within your Agile team.
In this course, you will learn how to set up the necessary pre-requisites for effective release management and get on the right track to developing a best-in-class release management practice.

Why learn agile release management?
Releasing products in Agile environments is difficult. Many teams struggle with it. When releases don’t go according to plan, Stakeholder relationships begin to deteriorate. And management expectations are not clearly set, and they are disappointed when unrealistic goals are not met. In defense, teams begin to spend too much time in planning, at the cost of building.
But how do you fix this? In a field where so many teams follow counter-productive practices, copying others won’t work.
This course will help set your team on the right path by showing you how to establish release best practices and troubleshoot existing issues.
