PY18 Sprint 1A Plan

Sprint 1, take two - "Once more with feeling."
Added by J. Simmons 21 days ago

The first iteration of Planning Year 2018 (PY18) is over. While we accomplished many key tasks, I hesitate to call it a sprint (we never got to setting up a complete sprint plan). It was more of a kanban run straight off of the evolving backlog. To say it was less than a perfect process is an understatement (you can see all the details in our Review and Retrospective).

We have since finished grooming the PY18 backlog and we have looked at how moving to our new planning year cycle (SyndCon to SyndCon) impacts our annual cadence. Based on this meta-planning work, we are calling the upcoming sprint Sprint 1A (this will put the rest of PY18 in sync with our proposed annual cadence). See below for all of the PY18 Sprint 1A details.

Duration: 6 weeks
Stand Ups: Thursday nights
Start: Oct 26, 2017
End: Dec 7, 2017
