Agile Workflows In Trello

My name is Brian Cervino, I am the Product Marketing Manager at Trello and today I am joined by our content manager Jessica Webb and support specialist Michael Labrecque-Jessen. The goal of this webinar is to show how agile and scrum techniques can be applied to a workflow in Trello and go over the three most important Trello boards for achieving these goals. Full disclosure, I am not a Scrum Master, but I do think that anyone that is familiar with agile & scrum or looking to get their feet wet, will get a lot of useful information from this webinar.

After the presentation I will be glad to answer any questions you have about how these workflows can be applied to your team. First, let’s quickly go over what agile is, and why I think Trello is a great tool for agile and Scrum development sprints. So why then Trello for Scrum and Agile workflows?

Getting things done isn’t just about shipping a product, or checking off items on a list, or even about marking a project as “Done.”

An Agile Trello Workflow That Keeps Tasks Flexible

Getting things done is a process: it’s a way of thinking that involves planning, execution, iteration, and reflection. There are often setbacks. There are many moving pieces. Often, the most effective processes involve collaboration to ensure the best possible outcomes. In short, getting things done isn’t easy, and it’s almost never smooth. The agile workflow has long been an effective strategy for programmers attempting to ship code in a timely fashion.

Trello recently passed the 10M user mark and is fast becoming a popular tool for Agile teams of all flavours.

Scrum with Trello

Its simplicity and the great web and mobile experience seem to win some teams over versus other more complex solutions out there. It is also pretty un-opinionated on how you use it, which can lead to some confusion as to how best to implement a Scrum process in Trello. I've been talking to a lot of people over the last year about how they're using Trello for their Scrum and Kanban processes, as well as reading everything I could on the internet relating to running Agile processes in Trello. So, today I present to you with the fruits of that labour: Everything I know about running a Scrum process in Trello. Let's get started... The basics Setting up your board Let's get started with the real real basics (don't worry it gets more interesting soon). Your process may vary from this but the key lists here are. How & Why to Build a Basic Gantt Chart for Almost Any Project. [Estimated read time: 13 minutes] I had planned on writing about losslessness, about accurate reproduction.

How & Why to Build a Basic Gantt Chart for Almost Any Project

I’ve always found it strange that at just about the same time that true losslessness became widely available cheaply, we suddenly seemed to care less about fidelity than ever before. So I had wanted to discuss the Internet’s imminent future, almost undoubtedly VR-based and highly resolution-dependent, and how that vision is slightly at odds with its history of relegating virtually everything to simple, low-resolution, compressed formats. With the path to writing such a post research and time-intensive, deadline-bound, and rife with potential rabbit holes that could very well result in me unintentionally plumbing the depths of the Internet, I began framing it as though it were typical proposed work — which, for me, means organizing a basic Gantt chart. It’s something I do to frame the projects included in client engagements, beginning even during the proposal stage.
