Collaboration Tool For Agile Teams
For Successful Agile Management
Why is collaboration important in Agile?
Agile team emphasizes communication and collaboration between team members. They subdivide one big project into small sprint units to manage the project timeline and work according to that timeline.
Agile principles mentions ‘Break the Silos of Your Project’. Agile sprint eliminates unnecessary task and delayed approval procedures. Instead, the team deploys the right manpower to complete the task faster.
In order to cope with rapid change, the development team reviews each other’s codes. And share ways to solve tasks more easily and quickly. In this process, everyone who participates in the project can experience and learn different things. Team members can contribute to continuous improvement by steadily delivering products that exceed expectations.
Therefore, if the team is formed, the members of the team should feel a sense of belonging, get to know the members of the same team naturally, and build a strong relationship step by step.
This is because we call it a “Team Building,” and through the team building, teams can wisely solve problems together, share and encourage when they are tired and angry, and double their joy when they have good things.
How Agile Teams use Collaboration Tools
Team building is an extremely important factor for teams that collaborate remotely. Working remotely in different spaces naturally reduces conversations. Additionally, there are fewer non-work conversations, and the bond between team members gradually fades.
Through the team building, you can maintain a closer relationship with your team members, such as being in the office together in an online environment.
For Meetings And Retrospectives
At the project planning stage, add project roadmaps and calendar templates to build up your timeline step by step. Not only PM and developers, but also designers and marketers gather on one board to draw a picture that everyone can agree on.
It is also important to talk about how to efficiently carry out the remaining projects. But it’s just as important to look back on what path we’ve been on.
Retrospectives, there’s nothing more difficult. At the end of the sprint, you can quickly look back and get ready with the agile retrospective template provided by Marimba.
It is very important to recognize areas where work is stagnating during agile collaboration. This is because the cycle of product development is divided into short sprint units, so if you don’t solve the accumulation or rapid progress of work, it will have a great impact on the entire project. One of the good ways to solve this is the backlog.
Backlogs can be easily organized by using the Kanbanboard template provided by Marimba. Organize what we need to do in the sprint, what we’re doing, what’s done, and what’s left unresolved on the pad. A simple summary of the sticky notes completes a work management board where project members can see at a glance where to focus!
Communication: Video conference, chat, messaging, sharing feedback
Start a video call with a button on an infinite whiteboard. It’s very easy to start without the need for app switching. Video call will speed up your work. Sharing opinions in real time while looking at each other’s faces. Thumbs up for the great idea of your colleagues! If you click twice on the screen I’m looking at, I’ll start sharing it with Marimba.
