Planning in the age of agile

Today, Swisscom’s “problem-to-solution” release train finished its first program iteration (PI) planning. This was done according to the SAFe methodology – a scaled agile framework for enterprises. Over 100 people – of which 6 development teams – planned and committed to the features and stories that will be implemented over the coming 10 weeks (5 x 2-week sprints). I’m proud to have supported this process by assuming the product owner role for a development team.

Cadence, transparency and alignment are the core principles that will now guide all teams to deliver business value.

Expect such planning events to become commonplace in Swiss corporations…
