OpenAgile and Small Business Management

For the past three months I have been working with Paul Heidema (our VP of Marketing) to use OpenAgile to run our business.  I thought it might be interesting for folks to see a screen capture of how we have arranged things in CardMeeting to do our planning and tracking. The yellow cards are labels for our Cycles, the white cards are Work Queue items, and the blue cards are Tasks related to the item.  The orange cards represent special information (eg. obstacles or ongoing work) and the green cards represent reflections and learning for each Cycle.

  1. The more Mishkin and I use cardmeeting the more useful it is. However, my computer is slowing down and it affects the speed of doing things in cardmeeting. I am wondering if there is a better way to organize our items. Maybe horizontally instead of vertically.

    The part that I find the most encouraging about this process is seeing how we have accomplished. It is a record of our success! I also like looking back on our reflections to see our thoughts and lessons learned.
