PM Agile

This solution extends ConceptDraw PRO v9. All Agile meetings and documents are powered by mission adapted mind map templates, specially tuned for collaborative work.


About

Benefits: All Agile meetings and documents are powered by mission adapted mind map templates, specially tuned for collaborative work. Tracking project velocity is easy when using ConceptDraw Velocity diagram templates.

Objective: To support Agile methods such as user stories, iteration planning, burndown charts, backlogs, and velocity.

Solution Purpose: These visual tools assist in the holding of Scrum-meetings, collaborative planning for Sprint, maintaining backlog, and calculating and reporting the velocity of the team.

Intended For: Companies using Agile methodology; specifically, Scrum; Product Owners, Scrum Masters.

Products and Methods: In the background of this solution we use mind mapping for the visualization of key events and artifacts of Agile methodology. Key diagrams for visualization are made by ConceptDraw PRO.

Solution Reference

Step 1. Visualize Scrum meeting agendas and artifacts as mind maps

Use mind map templates for creating maps for Scrum meetings (Sprint Planning, Daily Scrum, Sprint Review (Demo), Sprint Retrospective) and artifacts (Sprint Backlog, Scrum-ban Task Board), taking notes during meetings using the agenda as an outline, and filling Sprint backlog during the meeting. You receive visually impressive, readable, professional mind maps that document your status.

Use Task Board to visualize the Scrum-ban Task Board as a mind map In ConceptDraw MINDMAP, use the input “Task Board” Task Board.cdmtz MM
Step 2. Quickly create Burn Down and Velocity Charts

Enter data using our templates to make professional Scrum diagrams, Release Burn Down Charts, Sprint Burn Down Charts, and Velocity Charts.

Tasks Actions Products
