Our June 2020 Newsletter covers articles related to SAFe® Pi-Planning and Agile release train topics.
Distributed PI Planning
‘There’s no magic in SAFe® except maybe for PI Planning.’
Program Increment (PI) planning in SAFe is inarguably one of the most important events in SAFe. In fact, if you are not doing it, you are not ‘doing’ SAFe. In this article, Anshuman Singh takes a closer look at the PI Planning ceremony and uncovers why it is held in such high regard.
And if the article wasn’t convincing enough –
We recently conducted a webinar with Richard Knaster, SAFe Fellow and Author, where he shared his perspectives on PI planning. He also did a deep dive on the Program Board, which is often greatly misunderstood and if used incorrectly will impede agility, instead of accelerating it.
Agile Release Trains
The Agile Release Train (ART) is the primary value delivery construct in SAFe. The Agile Release Train is a long lived, self-organizing team of Agile Teams that is central to understanding the Scaled Agile Framework. This article by Anshuman Singh explains ARTs and covers the most important concepts surrounding them.
