Chapter 11 - Planning the Next Iteration
Exercise: Modify an enhancement request.
Go back to the previous enhancement request you looked at (CLSIC00000036,

request has already been assigned, we'll close this request as a duplicate.

Other Planning Activities
During an iteration, you usually work both to correct defects and to implement
enhancements. As part of planning, you might also use ClearQuest or RequisitePro to
identify the work to do in the next iteration.
During iteration planning, you can produce a Rational SoDA report showing the
defects and enhancements planned for the next iteration. You can also use
ProjectConsole to automatically generate charts and gauges with metrics gathered
from tools like RequisitePro and ClearQuest. This report helps you analyze the status
of your next project and share it with members of your team.
