The way Agile teams need and want to work is vastly different than it was even five years ago. Allowing Agile teams and teams of teams (Agile Release Trains) to work remotely opens organizations up to the option of hiring the best talent, no matter the zip code or time zone.
The key to allowing remote teams is maintaining the connection between the business strategy and work delivered. This is often done through in-person quarterly, mid-range, or Program Increment (PI) Planning. But what if in-person planning isn’t an option for whatever reason?
In this Essential Checklist, you’ll find a modified schedule that focuses on outcomes, rather than outputs, along with:
What preparation is needed prior to virtual or remote PI Planning
How to run a successful virtual or remote PI Planning
How to use Planview LeanKit pre-, during- and post-PI Planning
Take this opportunity to think outside the box and ensure your PI Planning events (either in-person or virtual) connect strategy to delivery.
In this essential checklist, we’ll answer this question: How do we do virtual PI Planning to keep our Agile Release Train(s) or teams of teams delivering the right value at the right time in an ever-pivoting environment? Some of these ideas are out of the box, but should, at the very least, be considered as you think about how to do virtual PI Planning.
