Executives and team members offer perspectives
Agile transformation is a journey. Planview has been on that journey doing mid-range aka PI Planning for more than a year. To help customers understand how far we’ve come, we conducted a series of video interviews with different people in the organization – executives, product owners, and team members – and asked them to share their experience.
Within Planview Marketing, we have three go-to-market teams. Each team has a GTM leader, one Scrum Master, two product marketing managers, two demand generation managers, a sales enablement expert, and a content strategist. Also included in PI Planning are executives, subject matter experts, representatives from product marketing as well as shared services.
This blog features a compilation of the interviews from participating PI Planning members.
We hope you find it informative as you navigate your Agile transformation journey and gather some tips from our experience.

We use enterprise software, like Planview Leankit, an Enterprise Kanban solution to conduct all our big room planning. As we approach our next Program Increment this week, we will be conducting it completely virtually – at home, leveraging LeanKit and Zoom. To get an idea about how to do this, I recommend reading the Essential Checklist: How to do Virtual PI Planning.
