Created specifically to enhance the collaborative demands of lean-agile teams, ThinkHub Agile is an add-on module to T1V’s core enterprise meeting software, ThinkHub. Agile thinking is a strategy that breaks down large projects into smaller pieces, with frequent feedback so that teams can make changes quickly. There are many different ceremonies within Agile thinking, like daily stand-up meeting, retrospectives, and what we’re focused on in this article - big room planning.
During a big room planning ceremony, all of the people in an organization working on a particular project or process meet to plan collaboratively. ThinkHub Agile directly supports big room planning in many ways.
When using ThinkHub Agile for a product planning session, teams can share feature ideas to the ThinkHub interactive Canvas.
The session facilitator has the ability to create different categories using the ThinkHub Groups tool. This way, team members can organize ideas by type.
As ideas for the product roadmap are discussed, team members can use AirConnect to create and share digital sticky notes to the Canvas. They can assign notes to a Group from their AirConnect App. The meeting facilitator can also drag and drop the ideas to different Groups on the ThinkHub Canvas.
Remote participants can join the session via Video Conference (ThinkHub supports Webex, Zoom, Skype For Business, and BlueJeans), engage with the content, and share their ideas to the digital Canvas in real-time. This makes it easier for global teams to come together for big room planning sessions, saving them time and money on travel, and ensuring remote workers have the same access and voice in big room planning as their in-room counterparts.
Agile sessions save time and are more efficient with ThinkHub Agile, as users can import and export digital sticky notes with third party software like JIRA and CA Rally.
Since the session is digital, the team can download and resume the session right where they left off.
