When SAFe move to LeSS

At one of my customers in Switzerland, we tried this afternoon to organize the Sprint Planning as described in the #LeSS framework. The planing ceremony split into three phases:

  1. The PO present the Features and Story intentions to his two teams
  2. Each team study the sprint backlog intentions and plan they work
  3. Each squad presents his planing to the PO and the others.

The team has the authorization to give stories between them, but respect has much has possible priority.

It is already the first improvement, not yet a full LeSS implementation as mentioned in the framework, the PO should present features, and the team decides how this will split

As they still use SAFe, the split of elements where made during the PI Planning.
