Program Increment Planning

The heartbeat of an Agile Release Train is the 2-day Program Increment planning (PI Planning) event. The entire Agile Release Train gets together to plan for the next Program Increment – the next 8-10 weeks. The result of PI Planning is a commitment to an agreed set of PI objectives. A major concept in SAFe, getting PI Planning right takes a lot of effort.

How do teams conduct their planning? What are some of the challenges? How does it work with remote teams? What are the best practices to conduct PI Planning for a large team? What kind of preperation is required?

If you are curious to learn more, this is the MeetUp to attend. We have assembled a panel of folks who have either led or participated in PI Planning events.

Thanks to Experis IT for providing this fabulous venue.
