Consider that we have 10 Product Backlog Items (PBIs) that have been estimated and, if all goes well, will make it into our next sprint, after Sprint Planning. At what point would it be appropriate to have the team think about ALL 10 PBIs as sort of a way to understand the end goal of this 10 PBI effort (assuming all PBIs are associated with a common theme/epic)? While it's understood that each PBI will deliver value on it's own, it's often helpful for the team to know what is next since it can help inform technical decisions.
Meetings that I've considered for this work:
Grooming - Doesn't seem like the right time because this would be too much about the "HOW" when we should be discussing the "WHAT" Planning - Too late since the PBIs have already been defined. I always assumed that, by this time, everyone would be ready to sign up and task out the PBIs.
When is the right time to do this? Or is this a PBI quality issue?
Would this be in the tasking phase of Sprint Planning? I would think that is too late in the process, since it's possible that information gathered during this effort would help restructure PBIs.
