That primarily had to do with me being forced to use the standard, heavy-weight forms in Visual Studio to edit Backlog Items and Actions. That did that we couldn’t use it in our daily scrums and hence someone (read: me) had to take notes and then go an update the TFS. In lean terms this was WASTE that was added to our project. I didn’t like that one bit. So we stopped using it. Quickly.
But now Conchango has created the tool that I think was the missing link. A Task Board application that mimics the actual task board that you draw and edit during sprints, planning and daily scrums.
All the usual benefits from introducing a IT-support could be found here; automatic generation of burn down (will it work?), the possibility to support distributed teams better, history, support in calculations and reports etc.
Give it a try – I know I will. Way to go Conchango!
