Why you will love the SAFe Program Board Widget for Rational Team Concert for your virtual PI Planning with globally distributed teams 

Abstract: The hype about scaled agility with SAFe continues. However, the immense travel costs are often suppressed. As a result, our mgmt put a restriction on traveling. This triggered starting the PI Plannings in a virtual setup with RTC. We got rid of physical stickies, strings and program boards. Next, we created the RTC “SAFe Program Board” widget, which allows us to visualize dependencies between work items. This simplifies and speeds up the SAFe PI planning in a globally distributed team setup. In this session, you will learn good and working practices with the help of Jazz/RTC for your PI Planning with globally distributed teams. You will see, how remote teams can pull features from the Program Backlog in RTC and draw dependencies on the SAFe Program Board widget running seamlessly in RTC. Although we agree that face-to-face communication is irreplaceable, the setup with Jazz/RTC is a viable alternative if travelng is restricted due to any kind of reason.
