We think in pictures… not in words!

When I say the word ‘Cake’ you think of a picture of a cake… not the word spelled out one letter at a time c-a-k-e.

In this light, when doing a PI Planning… during the PI Planning, make sure you have a visual ‘Program Board’… preferably not in excel spreadsheet! I have seen people capture features and their dependencies on a spreadsheet in a textual form… if you are doing this textual way of representing a program board, during the PI Planning, stop! Then, think of ways to help your teammates visualize — using visual forms like drawings, pictures, etc. instead of a textual form — the big picture in just one glance during the PI Planning… specially during the ‘Management Review’.
