ART Tightrope Walking

Our 10th, and final episode of the series recognises that the PI Planning event is just the beginning of the challenges of working with a distributed ART and reminds RTEs and all involved, that preparation is required to manage the on-going execution of the PI. Ian talks about ideas for running the Program Backlog Refinement and the ART Sync meetings of Scrum of Scrums & PO Sync, to be inclusive.

About the course

Preparing for PI Planning and continuously coordinating distributed ART during implementation can sometimes feel like a real BALANCING ACT, like walking on a TIGHTROPE. Ian J. Franks offers ideas to help you overcome these challenges.
