Agile Planning Beyond The Sprint

A common mistake for organizations beginning a transition to Agile is to focus on the daily and sprint cycle, but ignore the broader planning cycle.  Program and portfolio management are different in an Agile world, not eliminated. The excellent InfoQ: The Many Levels of Planning on an Agile Project - goes into quite a bit of depth on this topic.  The information presented can be a bit overwhelming, but the key takeaway is critical: you need to be thinking about your roadmap beyond the sprint in a structured AND iterative way.
