To deliver agile outcomes, you have to do more than implement an agile process- you have to create focus around what matters to your user and rigorously test how well what you’re doing is delivering on that focus. Driving to testable ideas (hypotheses) and maximizing the results of your experimentation is at the heart of a high-functioning practice of agile. This course shows you how to facilitate alignment and create a culture of experimentation across your product pipeline. You’ll learn how to answer these four big questions: 1. How do we drive our agility with analytics? 2. How do we create compelling propositions for our user? 3. How do we achieve excellent usability? 4. How do we release fast without creating disasters? More specifically, after completing this course, you’ll be able to: - Use metrics to facilitate alignment with your company’s objectives while keeping your team autonomous and creative - Drive to evidence-based, testable ideas that maximize outcomes and minimize waste - Structure analytics to focus your work and instrument observation for analytics-informed decisions - Test alternative interface patterns before you build them to maximize both product usability and purposeful implementation - Prioritize and execute investments in your delivery pipeline to increase the frequency of releases and decrease manual grunt work As a Project Management Institute (PMI®) Registered Education Provider, the University of Virginia Darden School of Business has been approved by PMI to issue 20 professional development units (PDUs) for this course, which focuses on core competencies recognized by PMI.
