Creating an Agile Schedule

Working in Agile can be difficult for content strategists. The pace is fast, leaving little time for research and testing editorial styles, content types, and microcopy. It helps to have a template to fill out with a goal for each iteration, and to use each iteration as a chance to create and test a subset of the strategy.

Template for Creating an Agile Schedule

Fill this out for each iteration during the agile process.

What are the development goals for this iteration?

  1. _______________________
  2. _______________________

What are the design goals for this iteration?

  1. _______________________
  2. _______________________
  3. _______________________


What open questions do I have in content?
Add an asterisk by the one(s) you will try to answer during this iteration.

  1. _______________________
  2. _______________________
  3. _______________________
  4. _______________________
  5. _______________________
  6. _______________________
  7. _______________________
  8. _______________________

What is my primary content goal in this iteration?*

What will I test in the final week of this iteration?


*Separate from this worksheet, keep a list of overall content goals, listed in order of priority. The primary content goal for each iteration should be one that aligns with the design and development goals, so that it can be tested using the “final” design and development at the end of the iteration.
