Agile planning & sprint development
Planning is one of the most critical and frequent activities that takes places in all agile-based development frameworks. The goal of planning is to always have a clear, prioritized, consistently defined work backlog with a clear vision and strategy to back it up. Having your plan in place sets the path for development and keeps sprints efficient and effective. You know in advance when you'll have daily scrums, reviews, and retrospective meetings. Once the product backlog is established in an initial planning session, teams revisit the plan at frequent, regular intervals to select work to accomplish, inspect progress and adapt to any changes that may have occurred during the interval.
In most Scaled Agile frameworks, planning typically takes place at two levels: a higher level, tying the greater backlog to strategy and vision, and at a lower level, tying the backlog to execution and delivery.
“We have to be able to be fast to market and be able to reduce the time from idea to implementation. So, tools like [Jira Align] that help us do that are strategically important.”
