Chris Foley: Scaling Agile, from one-team planning to multi-team planning in a Scrum organization

This organization’s planning process was about commitments, not shared understanding. This led to teams planning their work, and invariably coming to the conclusion that they could not deliver “because others…”. The organization would then spend time reassessing the output of the planning process, but never addressing the root cause of the problem. In this episode, we learn about how Chris and others in that organization started to develop a completely different approach: Continuous Planning for a multi-team organization.
