ART Tightrope Walking

When the Teams on your Agile Release Train are based in various locations, and you can’t get the location or the funding to bring them all together, executing a Program Increment Planning Event becomes even more of a challenge.
Trying to get the right trade-off between Time-zones, whilst creating an agenda that fosters collaboration and managing the technology required to provide alignment are just a few of the obvious challenges. Then when you start to think about the preparation for the PI Planning Event and the on-going alignment of the ART during execution, you soon realise that running a Distributed ART is a real BALANCING ACT!
So if you feel like your ART is walking a TIGHTROPE at times, then why not join Ian J Franks, for new series of videos where we’ll explore some ideas and approaches that will hopefully help you overcome
