At one of my customers in Switzerland, we tried this afternoon to organize the Sprint Planning as described in the #LeSS framework. The planing ceremony is split into three phases:
- The PO present the Features and Story intentions to his 2 teams
- Each team study the sprint backlog intentions and plan they work
- Each team presents his planing to the PO and other teams.
The team has the authorization to give stories between them, but respect has much has possible the priority.
It is already the first improvement, not yet a full LeSS implementation as mentioned in the framework, the PO should just present features and the team decides how this will be split.
Have they still use SAFe, the split of features was already done during the PI Planning.
