Program Board — visual Program Board that is — is indispensable during Management Review at the of day 1 of PI Planning.
By looking at the Program Board, the Management Team can assess the plan at a program level. Having the right people in a conversation about the plan of what to be built next with the program board as focal point is essential.
These problems could surface:
- Features being delivered on the same iteration as its dependencies
- Overloading of work
- Critical Path
Without a visual program board, it will be hard to spot these potential problems.
Don’t treat program board as afterthought. Build it on day 1 of PI Planning! Visualize it.
