Brainstorming, Story Boarding, and Retrospective Tool – IdeaBoardz

This week I was talking with some fellow colleagues about starting a Lean Coffee for our organization.  We have a national (soon to be international) footprint and a ton of knowledge out there, but how to bring it together?  So I thought the lean coffee meetings would be a great way to bring people together to inspire, encourage, equip, and empower each other. It could also create a consistent venue where we can work together to solve challenges for our clients.

I had a few different people suggest using a tool called IdeaBoardz.  I want to share this tool not only because think it will be great for Lean Coffee but it has value for things like brainstorming, story boarding, and retrospectives.  Especially if you have co-located teams.

It’s simple to use and has just enough functionality to make it useful. And best of all…it’s Free!

You can take it for a test drive without having to sign in or create an account.

MBP #1: Become More Agile By Doing Less

Micro Blog Post #1:

What Is An Agile Process? An agile process is simply ANY process that adheres to the principles of the agile manifesto. When the founders of the Agile Manifesto got together to create it and the principles, they asked what they were doing right. When working to continually improve do not simply focus on what where you need to improve. But look at what you are doing right and try to do more of that. Keep it simple and your agile teams will flourish. Becoming more agile doesn’t necessarily mean introducing more processes, it could just be focusing more intently on what is working.  Who knows, maybe you can become more agile by doing less.
