#1 – The Program Board

Authors’ comments:

Before the initial PI Planning (or Big Room Planning) events of an organisation, everyone has high expectations to especially the visualisation and alignment of dependencies between the teams. The way the first Program Boards could end up looking doesn’t necessarily radiate transparency and overview.

Using the visualisation of the potentially large number of dependencies as fuel, the subsequent focus should be to minimise and, ideally, eliminate these dependencies by working towards slicing features (more) vertically and ensuring that team compositions follow.
