Issue 19: Planning

Regular price $14.00

Estimated to ship the week of November 29.

This issue of Increment examines the ever-evolving practices of software planning, and how we can craft plans that enrich communication, alignment, and impact on engineering teams.

Articles cover topics such as rebranding tech debt and proactively planning for it; planning as a tool for generating momentum; leveraging RFCs for technical decision-making; how to plan product development before achieving product-market fit; and how to balance human and technical considerations in the planning process to enhance collaboration, velocity, and developer happiness.

Plus, engineering leaders at nine companies—including Netflix, Mailchimp, Asana, Reddit, LaunchDarkly, and Notion—share a snapshot of their planning processes, and JetBrains’ Elena Pishkova explains how the YouTrack team plans product development in public view and in collaboration with customers.
