Agile is the ability to both create and respond to change in order to profit in a turbulent business environment. Agility is the ability to balance flexibility and stability” – Highsmith, 2002

Planning Levels in Agile

Agile Planning
Product Vision Level 1
Vision is all about how we see the product in future. Vision answers following questions:
  • What
  • Who (users and stakeholders)
  • Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
  • Why (busiiness case)
  • When
  • Constraints, assumptions and risks
Product Roadmap
Vision is all about how we see the product in future. Vision answers following questions:
  • High level themes for the next few releases.
  • Show Progress towards Strategy
  • Determine and communicate when releases are needed
  • Focus on business value derived from the releases (Value based prioritization)
  • Product roadmap is owned and driven by product owner ( or product owner team)
Release Plan
  • A release is a collection of user stories.
  • High level plan 3 to 4 months of duration.
  • it helps to feeds into other strategic planning activities.
  • A projection, not a commitment.
  • We create release plan on the basis of :
    • Estimates ( Story Points)
    • Velocity
Iteration Plan
  • An Iteration is the task level planning done by team during the iteration meeting.
  • Self Directing and Self Organizing the work.
  • User Stories Planned in the Iteration are further decomposed into tasks.
  • Tasks are being estimated on the basis of man-hours. It is suggested that one task should be of max (1 to 1.5 days)
Daily Plan
  • Time boxed (15 minutes per day).
  • Each Team member convey about 3 questions:
    • What did I do yesterday?
    • What will I do today?
    • Report Impediment, if any.
  • Not a Planning session, but a way to go ahead.
  • Meeting is between the Agile Development team ( No Outsider allowed).
