The inception agenda defines the sessions and topics we’ll cover in our inception. During planning, we define a detailed schedule that we can use to organise and run the inception.

The schedule frames, tops and tails the ‘sessions’ defined by our agenda with a number of supporting ceremonies. It also determines timings and locations and confirms attendees.

This provides the necessary structure to ensure we stay on track and manage expectations. It can also enable participants to still attend to critical day-to-day work.

Remember, no plan survives contact with the enemy, so be prepared to adapt as you go along. A good schedule will help you do so.
