We are constantly blown away by the incredible variety of uses that Method Grid is put to. In this post, we talk about one such example: how Method Grid is used to host an agile sprint board and other related tools (such as prioritisation matrices).
At the heart of most use cases is the capture of structured service methodologies, operating procedures and training libraries – essentially the capture of your corporate playbook. What we are increasingly seeing, however, is the mix of such structured grids with more agile-based tools (such as agile sprint boards) and facilitation frameworks. A number of power users indeed link the two i.e. an overarching grid maps out their methodology and elements within this grid link off to second-level tools – which are in effect separate grids.
Here at Method Grid, we certainly harness the platform for both structured IP (where the grid columns equate to “stages” in a process/method) and such agile sprint boards (and other agile-based working tools).
In this short video, Dom describes such a use case – bringing to life how Method Grid supports both the prioritisation of our future software development and the visual supervision of our fortnightly working sprints: where a grid is used as an active scrumban board (scrum + kanban = scrumban).
