Who is the solution for and why?
PI Planning is a crucial part of the agile process, but it can be difficult to coordinate PI Planning events for teams that are spread out geographically. PI Planning Toolkit helps to lead hybrid PI Planning events without distraction, avoids manual copy-paste work, and ensures alignment and focus across all your teams.
With the collaborative support offered by PI Planning Toolkit for strategic planning workshops both in-person and remotely, this PI Planning solution offers a virtual collaboration space and a consolidated view of all team and program boards. Teams can seamlessly move between views: their sprint planning boards and the boards of other teams, helping unlock the value of centralized visualizations of work.
Leverage real-time, data-driven capabilities for PI Planning. Connect disparate Agile planning and work tracking tools, such as Jira, in PI Planning Toolkit and synchronize data for better cross-team planning, collaboration, and transparency around risks and dependencies.
PI Planning is essential for large scale organizations using an Agile approach. Many product teams and agile facilitators use PI Planning to align and bring teams towards one shared vision. There are 5 key roles in a PI Planning event:
- Release Train Engineers
- Product Managers
- Product Owners
- Scrum Masters
PI Planning Toolkit is not only a PI Planning app. This artifact builds the heart and core of the Essential SAFe methodology, but within PI Planning Toolkit all aspects of Agile Enterprise Management can be implemented, up to the connection of Strategy and Delivery.
Unlike 'digital post-it note' tools, the PI Planning Toolkit is dynamic - store complex information and drill-down into insights with features like filtering, calculations, processing and relationships.
Filter by team, by iteration, by date – even hide items that don’t have dependencies so you can zero in on what’s most critical to your conversation.
PI Planning Toolkit's built-in presentations tool makes it easy for your teams to refer back and keep your vision in mind as they plan, and Forms make it easy for them to update the value of existing items.
With 200+ connectors, SharpCloud makes gaining clarity a breeze when you can import data from platforms including Excel, PowerBI, SharePoint List and more.
Ideas, concepts and strategies can be presented in various views, whilst highlighting supporting information, relationships, and more through Items.
