Learn how to use Microsoft Project to manage agile projects including traditionally scheduled tasks and agile work.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Bonnie Biafore. Welcome to Agile Project Management with Microsoft Project. I kick things off with setting up projects so it's agile-friendly. You'll explore the project option settings best suited to agile work. Then we'll set up custom fields to keep track of features, feature points, sprints, and releases. Next up is building a task list for an agile project. We'll look at traditionally scheduled tasks for project initiation and planning.
Then I'll dig into creating and maintaining the product backlog of features. You'll also discover how to add features to sprints. We'll dive into setting up views to show your product backlog and what's going on with releases in sprint. I'll show you how to update features to show that they're done. You'll also see how to handle features that didn't get completed during a sprint. Finally, we'll create a report to show work burndown and the velocity that the team has achieved in sprint.
