Years ago when we started working with Scrum, there were no tools to support working this way. Most people did what was shown in Ken Schwabers original book, used spreadsheets …
現agemba provides the ability to design, describe, decompose, delegate, document and supervise important initiatives, product developments and projects. 現agemba’s customizable Dashboard gives an immediate overview for everybody in the organization. An abundance of Dashlets can present data in just the way needed to extract the core information. Immediate status of key data is captured at a glance on large screens, PCs or mobile devices.
Road Map and Outline
Two of 現agemba’s great innovations are the Roadmap and the Outline view, a unique combination of a Story Map (a functional breakdown) and a Timeline. The Roadmap establishes common vision and common goals. Everybody can see relationships and dependencies at a high level. The Outline allow the discerning to dive into appropriate detail and see when things must or will be available, when things are planned to be done.
The key to success with complex work is to keep a firm grasp of the real situation. In 現agemba the Story Map is a cornerstone. It visualizes the solution, the values to the stakeholders and time based constraints in a two dimensional structure, matching our brain’s cognition and memory. The Story Map is a combination of a mind map with a spreadsheet, always aggregating information to the level of interest for the stakeholder.
現agemba has a strong collaborative aspect, all Comments and changes are tracked, there is complete traceability, who did what and when. Users are presented with everything of relevance to them. 現agemba has a very powerful data analysis tool, it is simply called the List View. With this all data including historical statistical data, can be queried, filtered, sorted and presented. 現agemba supports the full Agile patterns of working such as Scrum and Kanban.
