About this talk

Big Room Planning (BRP), sometimes referred to as PI Planning, is a two-day release train planning event. The purpose of the event is a collaborative planning process resulting in a committed roadmap for the Planning Increment (PI). At Rally, our PIs are fiscal quarters, organized into six or seven two-week sprints, with all teams on the same sprint cadence. The final sprint of the quarter is really two, one-week sprints; one for Hackathon, and one for the Big Room Planning event. This webinar will walk you through answering these release planning preparation questions: 1. Will our team structure change? 2. Are there any known upcoming disruptions? 3. How much capacity do we have for the upcoming release? 4. During the past release, were we able to make changes to the plan when new, important information emerged? Did we allow for change? Were we consumed with change? 5. How much time have we historically spent on defects? During this time, has our defect debt improved or declined? 6. What is our investment strategy for the upcoming release? 3 Reasons To Attend: 1. Improve planning, tracking and forecasting by leveraging analytics metrics 2.
