The workshop is to describe the state-of-the art and practice of release planning. In times of more and more adaptive development, the value of planning in general needs to be revisited. With the comprehensive information available from all kinds of repositories, forums and user groups, the process and participation in the release planning process needs to be changed. The workshop is designed to provide processes to support analytical product release planning and illustrates its value by case study results.
