Agile Program Management provides structure for teams to practice Program Increment (PI)/Quarterly planning, map dependencies between each other, coordinate and manage how their work gets delivered within the team, across multiple teams and across the entire organization. It enables teams to connect their tool of choice into a program or teams-of-teams board with ease – enabling them to continue delivering value without disruption.
