Key Investment Questions
• Will this Epic drive
business results
identified in
Investment Themes?
• Is this Epic ordered
relative to the other
Epics? Is this
prioritization reflected
on the Epic Backlog?
• Are we meeting
allocation by channel in
alignment with our
agreements? Is this
reflected in the Epic
Backlog?
• How big is this Epic?
Should be less than 3
months so we can
plan and “see”
progress.
• Do we need all the
Features to meet the
business goal? Start
thinking MVP.
• Is the forecasted date
acceptable? Should we
reprioritize?
• Start thinking Cost of
Delay
• Which Epics go into the
next release? Establish
release objectives.
• Are the Epics ready for
Release Planning?
• Have Epic owners
considered MVP?
• What is the confidence
in the release plan?
• Do we have credible
release plans
documented?
Strategic Alignment Detailed PlanningDemand Planning Execution Governance
• Is the software demoed?
• Have we solved the
business problem
identified in the Epic Brief?
• Should we stop building
and get market feedback
to validate our
assumptions?
• Are we making progress on
the epics?
• Are the stories ordered by
cost of delay?
