PI planning is complex enough in person, let alone with a remote or hybrid team
Still, many Agile teams have found that digital PI planning events are more engaging, inclusive, organized, and effective than traditional in-person sessions.
Planning for PI planning (that’s a mouthful!) helps to get everyone aligned and make the event itself run smoothly. On May 18, we hosted a webinar with Agile experts from Booz Allen®, the world’s oldest management consulting firm, who pioneered remote PI planning for their team.
Watch the replay to learn how you can:
- Empower your team to facilitate effective digital PI planning sessions
- Create an engaging and safe environment for all participants
- Structure your event to accommodate a remote or hybrid team
- Use technology to streamline — not hinder — collaboration
