Multi-team Release Planning, as it is often executed, fails to bring alignment beyond one-time inter-team coordination. When the “Chief Product Owner” arrives with just descriptions of features, the teams don’t learnt the connection between features and value. This hands-on session provides a hypothetical Product Wall Release Workshop. The Product Wall Release Workshop brings together all the elements of business needs, user experience, value proposition, dependency resolution, risk mitigation and user story planning. By combining various Agile collaboration techniques in a guided sequence, your multi-team Release Planning can create alignment by learning together and building together a clear path to success, from the release vision all the way to Sprint Backlogs.
