The Agile Manifesto states, “The most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a development team is face-to-face conversation.” SAFe takes this to the next level with PI Planning, a routine, face-to-face event, with a standard agenda that includes a presentation of business context and vision followed by team planning breakouts.
Here, the teams create their iterations plans and objectives for the upcoming PI Facilitated by the Release Train Engineer (RTE), this event includes all members of the ART, whenever possible. It takes place over two days, and occurs within the Innovation and Planning (IP) Iteration. The result of planning is a commitment to an agreed set of Program PI objectives for the next PI. Holding the event during the IP iteration avoids affecting the timebox, scheduling, or capacity of other iterations in the PI.
In this webinar, Jack highlights the primary activities and resources that an RTE uses to plan for the SAFe PI Planning sessions.
