Visual workspaces are great for communicating a lot information fast. While Story walls are popular for showing the state of an iteration, don’t let that limit what you show. Create and visualize anything important to you and your team.
Here what we are radiating from the current project I am working on.
This wall shows all the days of the month and what we plan on releasing when. It’s handy for scheduling releases, showing important dates when doing daily standups, and just giving everyone a quick update on any important release dates. Great for coordinating and getting everyone on the same page.
The inception deck gives people an overview of the project at a glance. We don’t always start with full teams, and it’s handy to be able to walk someone over to the wall, and give them an overview of the project at a glance.
This wall may seem a bit defensive, but if you want to show what you and your team have done, create a card for every major milestone or release and make it visible.
Here we are proudly showing that we’ve done a major release every month, while working closely with the support team to crush about x15 bugs per month. Ya!
