Learn how to plan for production emergencies during a sprint

Every Agile team has to deal with different emergencies next to their regular work. Every team’s dream of achieving sustainable pace comes with nightmares of production emergencies, defects, support and maintenance tasks within a sprint which takes the focus completely off the sprint goals.
In this webinar, our speaker would walk you through different approaches that teams can take to absorb a reasonable amount of uncertainty, and to strike a balance between robustness and speed within the sprint. He will share how to deal with "Pivot" in lean product development, where a product has to go through a course correction in terms of vision, market segment and features. And since this is almost an emergency on the business side, we will also see how engineering teams can do course correction in their approach to deal with such scenarios.
