Planning before plans

By: John D. McGregor


Planning is often tedious and seldom quick. Planning involves deciding the specifics concerning how some high level task will be performed. Planning occurs prior to the actual action so that we have thought through the entire sequence of actions prior to carrying out any of the actions. Boehm and Turner characterize agile development as planning driven rather than plan driven [Boehm 03]. Agile teams spend little time communicating “the plan,” but conduct planning sessions on a regular schedule.
