The Product Wall Release Workshop

Multi-team Release Planning, as it is often executed, fails to bring alignment beyond one-time, inter-team coordination. When the “Chief Product Owner” arrives with just descriptions of features, the teams don’t learn the connection between features and value. The Product Wall Release Workshop brings together all the elements of business needs, user experience, value proposition, dependency resolution, risk mitigation and user story planning. By building planning artifacts face-to-face, everyone involved in the effort shared an increased understanding and clarity about the coming release. The resulting Release Product Wall shows potential sprint schedules and inter-team dependencies. After the workshop, The Release Product Wall is continually updated throughout the sprints as an inter-team coordination tool and real-time release content tracking.
