Align multiple teams on a shared vision and release plan

Aligning all the teams on the Agile Release Train (ART) to a shared mission and vision is the goal of Program Increment (PI) Planning. As an integral part of the ‘team level’ of SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework), (PI) Planning is a cadence-based, 2-day planning event that serves as the core of the ART.

Historically, PI Planning is completed in person on whiteboards with lots of sticky notes and red yarn. Our PI Planning template enables teams to plan collaboratively in real time from anywhere — without transcribing notes later or potentially losing valuable ideas. Keep ART teams on task with checklists for prep and day of event. Each team is provided with an individual team-level plan and confidence vote area. Ensure alignment with program and team boards all on the same template.
