This workshop is the second part of the ANA’s Agile Marketing Mastery Program, a four-part series designed to give you exposure to all facets of Agile Marketing and equip you for implementation at
your organization.

In this virtual workshop, participants will get a closer look at the players involved and their
responsibilities within the Agile process by taking a deep dive into the Sprint Planning and project estimating process. These two parts of the process make up the foundation of a successful sprint and usually where the most challenges arise. Following a deep dive on the fundamentals, participants will be given the opportunity to apply what they learned to a campaign specific to their brand, using the Poker Planning process and tracking team times via Team Velocity.

This engaging virtual workshop contains individual exercises, case studies, and real-world examples to give you ‘real world’ experience you need to be able to implement Agile on the job. The workshop will also enable your team to develop their own Agile implementation plan for the team. It will re-inspire your team to greater communication, collaboration, and to deliver their best work.

This is the second installment in the ANA’s four-part series “Agile Marketing Mastery Program”, where participants learn the power of agile methodologies and principles to drive marketing strategies that are adaptable, customer-centric, and results-driven. Participants will receive hands-on practice moments through sessions such as “Poker Planning Process” and gain insight to effective team communication and collaboration.

Target Audience
This virtual workshop is open to marketers at any level within an organization that develops and/or executes marketing campaigns. It is particularly useful for teams looking to implement an agile process throughout their organization.
