Physical Scrum Board
- Some of us had a session on this at the ScrumGathering.
Does a tool replace the physical board? No (IMHO), unless common
sense says that the physical board is useless (maybe so if no two
people can ever be in the same room, as one example).
Can you use a physical board and a tool? Yes.
Anyway, I promised to get back with info on magnetic push pins. They
are magic, to me. Use them with cards (CRC) on whiteboard. (Almost
all white boards are magnetic.) One use: Get the team up by the board
as they do their stand-up. Magic once they get it. Lots and lots of
Code QRTMPPC -- check Google or Amazon. Packs of 20 push pins around
$7.50 per pack. Reusable. Yeah, a bit pricey. How does this price
compare to the cost of an Agile tool?
I guess this needs saying: A physical board and magnetic push pins
might seem stupid until you realize that knowledge creation is best
done as a group activity. And Agile is all about learning faster.
