6. Delivery Horizon
6.4 Time Frames
Agile Extension to the BABOK® Guide
At the Delivery Horizon, planning focuses on the day-to-day delivery of backlog items. Agile delivery teams plan on a very short-term basis. What short-term means depends on the organization and the context in which it is operating. As a general reference, the Delivery Horizon guides analysis and action over the period of the upcoming one to four weeks to as long as six to eight weeks. In an agile context, this time frame continually shifts and moves forward, creating what can be considered a rolling time frame.
