  • Agile Planning is highly disciplined. One key difference from traditional planning is that it is continuous, so we avoid the rapid obsolescence of long-term plans. Traditional plans spend too much effort up-front, causing waste.Why 5 Levels?- As leaders, we must provide a clear method for prioritization and budget allocation to keep projects aligned with business needs- As team members, we must show how our daily work maps to our strategyFor everyone, we must be able to Set targets and meet commitmentsEffectively plan budgets and assign resourcesQuickly assess progress and costs against our goals5 Levels gives us a Systematic approach for delivering projects aligned with business priorities. So we can:Sequence releases to best support the businessRoll-up status of individual teams to track progress and costs of our higher level initiatives and programsStop work in progress that’s no longer relevantPPM and ALM are converging all around the “project”. PPM controls the funding and management of projects. Execution of projects is going Agile and Agile is disrupting the entire process – hence PPM needs to change to reflect the revolution that is Agile.PPM vendors are announcing support for Agile. Daptiv and CA included. For us, we see PPM as the productization of the top 2 levels of planning. It’s an organized process that goes beyond what we manage today to look at the entire lifecyle from idea to funding to execution to production.
  • Note: This is launching 24 teams within a year and getting these teams to Flow and basic Agile best practices. And, some teams will also be moving into Pull as they mature. And, for companies that embrace these practices, Program Pull can also begin.Rally recommends that an organization launch teams in “waves.” In the example above, the Agile & Rally rollout begins with the launch of 5 teams. As teams are launched and go through an iteration, a Rally coach also facilitates retrospectives and planning for the next iteration. As critical mass is reached, Rally can conduct private Certified ScrumMaster and/or Certified Product Owner training or these team members can attend public courses. Rally coaches usually begin to train the company’s internal coaches in Q2. It is important to note that Rally’s coaching engagements will be customized according to the organization’s needs.
