The Twitter planning process is based upon Objectives, Key Results. Andy Grove at Intel first wrote about this approach 30+ years ago and we’ve taken it and added a distinct Twitter flavour. We have a quarterly planning cadence that all individuals, teams and groups participate in. This is coupled with continuous planning - think Kanban at the portfolio level.
Twitter is growing at a cracking pace! As we grew from 10′s to 100′s of agile teams we faced a challenge – how can we get visibility across teams, and how can we drive alignment with the company goals?
Clearly scaling Twitter effectively and efficiently is essential to our continued success and growth. In this session we’ll explore Twitter’s quarterly planning process*, and learn how we leveraged tools to enable hundreds of teams to align with company goals and provide visibility at the right level of granularity for the intended audience.
