Renowned author and consultant Howard Podeswa teaches best practices drawn from agile and agile-adjacent frameworks, including ATDD, BDD, DevOps, CI/CD, Kanban, Scrum, SAFe, XP, Lean Thinking, Lean Startup, Circumstance-Based Market Segmentation, and theories of disruptive innovation. He offers a comprehensive agile roadmap for analysing customer needs and planning product development, including discussion of legacy business analysis tools that still offer immense value to agile teams. Using a running case study, Podeswa walks through the full agile product lifecycle, from visioning through release and continuous value delivery.
