Multi-team Planning


All program team members, including project teams from different functional groups/departments, collaborate to establish tactical execution plan.


Enable all teams to collaborate and identify risks & dependencies across teams, so that a program-level plan can be finalized.


Team members from all teams meet to review key interaction points for work items requiring support from multiple teams. Teams identify critical dependencies and establish approximate timing of predecessors and successors to minimize risk of delays. Key risks are documented and categorized by response strategy, i.e. avoid, accept, mitigate, or transfer.

  • Assemble teams and team leads
  • Review consolidated list of work items
  • Allocate work items to individual teams based or expertise & skill set
  • Identify cross-team dependencies
  • Identify risks and define response plan for high prob- ability/high impact risks
