Once an established practice, the mid-range planning event for various reasons has all but died off in most companies. The Scaled Agile Framwork (SAFe) which enables scaling agility across large, complex businesses, has re-established the event as a key practice. Even if you're organization is not yet doing agile this practice will help you be more effective and deliver more value to your customers sooner. This event will help improve alignment, communication, cross team coordination, identify dependencies, and build stronger teams. Implementing this event may seem like a daunting task, but the return greatly outweighs the cost. When you learn how to organize and execute mid-range planning you will dramatically increase your programs likelihood of success.
