RTE Cockpit crash course



18min 48sec

In the 8th lesson of RTE Cockpit course, we learn about the Program Board configuration. You will also get pro tips such as configuring an SoS Agenda sticky note. This sticky is easy to filter when it comes to the SOS session and the timeboxing. On the Program Board, it is also possible to mirror different sticky types such as Dependency, Feature, and Enabler on the board.

The Program Board configuration is extremely simple with the knowledge we have built up in the previous steps and lessons. The only sticky type that we specifically configure on the program board is "milestones / events". We can add additional sticky types if we want. For example, after PI Planning we can also add a sticky type "SoS Agenda" with a bright color. This way the Scrum Masters can transparently note their discussion points for the Scrum of Scrums session already during the iteration on the Program Board. When we go into the SoS session we can filter the board according to this sticky type and have a full agenda at our hands, which we can also timebox with the timer in This is just one out of many examples I wanted to share with you as a leading practice.

Below we see all the other sticky types that can be mirrored to the program board. We have configured the dependency on the team board, the feature and the enabler on the program backlog board, And all of them can be mirrored to this board.

After we are done with this board configuration, press Next.
