Program leaders who use a collaborative approach to building program increment (PI) plans will need to prepare the feature backlog and get a start on risk identification before the event itself.
Teams members must help prepare for and execute PI Planning. This guidance will help you use Jira Cloud and Advanced Roadmaps to support successful remote PI Planning.
Planning prep
These tasks will help you ensure the planning session for the program is a valuable use of time:
  • Check strategic alignment: Ensure you are planning the right work by associating the work to the planning period and aligning features with higher-level work items (for example, epics/themes) and/or objectives.
  • Target features to teams/sprints: Verify backlog priority to ensure work is properly prioritized for the program. Determine which teams will work on which features.
  • Identify needs outside program: Coordinate dependencies with other teams, programs, and organizations to give your plan the highest chance of success.
