Join Bob McGannon for an in-depth discussion in this video Deriving your risk management approach, part of Agile Project Management Foundations.

Assuming the first sprint went really well, you can…work on more difficult features in the second sprint.…If your team requires more practice at working in…an agile environment, then keep the features more simple.…In this example, any features…that require a lot of cross…department communications, advanced technical capabilities, or…are extremely intricate to produce, should be moved to a subsequent sprint.…
