Innovation and Planning

SAFe provides for periodic Innovation and Planning sprints, which serve a variety of purposes, including: providing an estimating buffer for meeting objectives; a dedicated time for Inspect and Adapt and Release Planning activities; a cadence-based opportunity for innovation; time for continuing education; time for working on the technical infrastructure, tooling, and any other impediments; and time for backlog refinement. In addition, in the case where the PI milestone also constitutes a Release, the IP iteration provides time for any final system validation and documentation activities that may be required.
