PI Objective — Demystified Part II

PI Objectives are found at the team level and at the program level. Of course, these cascade up to fulfill objectives at the portfolio level and enterprise level. Here, we focus on PI Objectives at the team and program levels. Simply put, team PI Objectives are key outputs of the PI Planning session.

Once ingrained, it is hard to unlearn. Same is true…
