Agile software development supports a release plan, but it's challenging to coordinate that on a multi-team level when you've got a lot of dependencies between teams. Rosetta Stone, a language learning technology company, found a solution to this challenge by bringing their entire development organization together about once per quarter to map out 10 to 12 weeks of work.
