There are few tools as elegant or as pervasive as the sticky note. We use them for everything from writing down our reminders, to launching the most influential products in the world. But while there’s a specific kind of joy in resetting the adhesive in the “Done” column on the whiteboard, we all know the physical methods are rife with challenges, especially in an increasingly connected, yet fragmented work environment. To accommodate, some software companies have gone so far as to build their entire product on the premise that everything can be a virtual board. And while that model works for some, we must contend with different layouts for different needs. Sometimes our teasms like warm embrace of the spreadsheet grid. While others may cozy up to a charting tool to visually work with their stuff. However, at the end of the day the goal is clear - plan the work, work the plan, and get the job done.
This template seeks to bring some of the familiar boards in concert with other layouts of data, all in service of efficiently managing biweekly sprints.
