Abstract

In recent few years, the adoption of agile and lean development practices has increased remarkably. However, this is not the end, new and innovative approaches that support continuous practices are needed. Continuity is required in all the levels of the organisation; from business strategy and planning to software development and thereafter to operational deployment, as well as between these levels. Continuous planning means implementing planning practices continuously, in rapid parallel cycles, instead of the predefined and regular planning occasions. Continuous planning is not commonly adopted and applied throughout the organisation and currently involves only a certain level of planning, e.g. release planning. Based on the current literature, continuous planning is a relatively new and not yet fully studied field of research. To augment the knowledge relating to continuous planning, this research plan presents how the knowledge relating to continuous planning is going to be increased and disseminated.
