Release the Power of Visualisation with Graphic Templates

Visualisation to Unlock Potential

I often hear people coming to my Meetups and 'Visualisation Workshops' asking about the potential of visualisation. Often people, just like you, have questions about how illustration can help - do any of these ring bells with you?

  • What if I could visualise my ideas more effectively?
  • How can I make it easier for people to relate to what I have in my mind?

20-Jul-2016 11:00:00 Kanban Scrum Agile teams Scrum team How-To

This blog is a case study of an Agile implementation which started off as a classic Scrum implementation, and then evolved to use Scrumban and Kanban techniques.

In the Beginning.


It is day 1 of sprint 1 for a team.  


To set some context, a Business Analyst had spent several months preparing a product backlog of nicely written user stories. They were conveniently written in the user story format:
