Lightning Talk: Meaningfully Reframing PI Planning

Written for Netherlands European SAFe Summit, May 2019.


My thanks to Chris McDermott for introducing me to Social Practice Theory which gave a very solid theory background to why the reframes are necessary. You might even say that it added Meaning.

PI Planning (aka Big Room Planning) is the heartbeat of the Agile Enterprise.

Scaled Agile offer substantial guidance materials, and build competence with training offerings. Even with these, though, it is a difficult practice to learn, and even more difficult to operate well. The missing element is Meaning — that is to say, how you think about the practice. The intent with which you fill it.

This lightning talk offers 3 key changes in the way you think about PI Planning that have a profound impact on results.
