How Jira Align Supports Managing the PI Execution

Essential SAFe revolves around delivering value by implementing Features within Program Increments (PIs). The 3 major activities relative to a PI surround a PI Planning event: Preparing for PI Planning, PI Planning event itself, and managing the execution of the PI. Without tool support, performing these activities can be a daunting task.

Jira Align is the premier tool for supporting all levels of SAFe and provides support for all 3 of these activities.

Here we demonstrate how Jira Align supports managing the execution of the PI:

  • The Program Room – dashboard to manage the program and teams
  • The Program Board and Dependency Maps – tools to identify planning issues and managing dependencies
  • The Work Tree – a full hierarchical view of the work and progress
  • Various additional reports to check the progress of the work
  • Clean Up Report can facilitate cleaning up the PI in preparation for the next one.

Peter Luckey is a Sr. Solutions Consultant & SPC with 321 Gang.

We have helped our clients:
  • Increase productivity by 25-75%
  • Reduce development costs by 50-60%
  • Accelerate time to market by 20-40%

SAFe provided the agility, visibility, and transparency needed to ensure we could integrate with numerous other efforts, get predictable in our delivery, and ensure timelines are met.
