Today’s shifting and increasingly hybrid workforce presents a new set of challenges that can make it difficult to uphold Agile values. Our recent webinar, Sustaining the values of the Agile Manifesto in today’s workforce, demonstrated in-depth how Lucid is the perfect solution to address the need for communication, flexibility, and alignment. 

Here are the four main Agile Manifesto values and how Lucid can help you sustain them:

  1. Individual and interaction over process and tools 
    • Lucid products support communication and transparency, as our products support both real-time and asynchronous collaboration.
    • Features such as comments, Team Spaces, Visual Activities, and more, give team members a place to consistently come back to for connection and knowledge-sharing, giving everyone a voice.
  2. Working software over comprehensive documentation 
    • Lucid helps here with alignment and avoiding over-documentation because Lucid documents can become a living blueprint of your business.
  3. Customer collaboration over contract negotiation 
    • Lucid can support better communication and transparency with your customers. Invite customers as Guest Collaborators on your boards and easily capture and store their feedback.
    • Features like Visual Activities and voting can be used with customers, not just internally, and allow you to get a sense of what your customers want.
  4. Responding to change over following plan 
    • Lucid helps you with flexibility and transparency, as Lucid products are all about moving quickly 🏃 You can easily facilitate discussions around changes using voting, comments, Facilitator Tools, and more to quickly gather opinions and visualize outcomes and downstream effects of potential changes.

Hi @Addie !

Hope you're doing well.

As a Product Owner role at a real estate tech company in Brazil I've I've been using Lucidspark for Backlog Refinement and prioritization.

By Friday I expect to use the Sprint Review template to conduct this ceremony. 

One of the the issues that the board users are already facing are:

  • Difficulty in expanding Font size bigger than 96;
  • Difficulty selecting a specific icon and instead creating a Sticker Note;
  • Needing to zoom out even farther than 1%;

Anyway - thanks for sharing this template. ✌
