ART cross-team Backlog after Features Exploration by teams

At Team level, ideas of feature that support the enterprise strategic themes are analyzed by the Teams according to their specificities and responsabilities:

  • Turn the loosely-formed idea into well-formed features with descriptions, business benefit hypotheses, acceptance criteria, prototyping and estimated story points,
  • Split Features into smaller User stories at Team level,
  • Automatically populate each Team backlog when Features and Stories have been explored and are ready to be planned, as well the ART backlog with the synchronisation mechanism.

Flexible Program Increments Planning

ART is where the Agile Product Delivery team gathers and consolidates the Backlog of the product. Here is the place for planning, building, and validating a full system increment, demonstrating value, and collecting feedback:

  • Visualize analyzed and ready-to-be-planned features into the cross-project backlog
  • Plan Program Enablers and/or Features in a Program Increment and prioritize them by drag’n dropping them at the right place
  • Automatically mirror Program Increments and iterations created at Program level to Teams level
