#4 ART PI Risk Board
Updated over a week ago

During the PI planning, teams can identify risks that could impact their ability to meet their objectives. Teams can move or mirror their Team Risk Sticky types to the ART PI Risk Board and in addition, other non-Team stakeholders can create ART-level Risk sticky notes directly on the ART PI Risk Board. The latter is the purpose of the configuration on #4 ART PI Risk Board.

Configure Sticky Types for the ART PI Risk Board

Configure a Risk Sticky type that all other stakeholders can use to raise risks at the ART level. By default the PI session is configured with 2x Sticky types for the ART PI Risk Board, they are:

  1. ART Risk; the Sticky function is a Work Item and not a Risk Sticky function for two reasons:

    • ART Risks on the ART PI Risk Board are ROAM'd via the dragging and dropping the sticky note into the right area on the ART PI Risk Board's canvas.

    • ART Risks can have a general status - To Do, In Progress, Done - to allow for tracking management action.

  2. Note; just a sticky note for adding notes like a physical sticky note

Default ART PI Risk Board sticky type configuration

The ART PI Risk Board then becomes indispensable when it comes time to resolve (R.O.A.M) all the risks in a broader management context. Use the ART PI Risk Board to review risk (Team or ART level) one by one; the risks are discussed and decisions can be made into one of the following categories:

  • Resolved – The teams agree that the risk is no longer a concern

  • Owned – Someone on the train owns the risk since it cannot be addressed during PI planning

  • Accepted – Some items are simply facts or potential problems that must be understood and accepted

  • Mitigated – Teams identify a plan to reduce the impact of the risk

Move or Mirror a Team Risk sticky note to the ART PI Risk Board

If a Risk Sticky Type is moved from the Team Boards on to the ART PI Risk Board, it will get the sticky type and color of the first Sticky Type configured on the ART PI Risk Board; this might be a useful configuration.
