Promote self-organized procedures with task boards

CONTACT Elements Agile Methods enables an agile approach in comprehensive teams. Use the universal functions of the task board technology for the agile processing of project tasks and open points. As project boards, the tool enables self-organized creation and editing of tasks in the project context in a bottom-up manner. Used as team or personal boards, CONTACT's task boards enable your project teams and employees to quickly and easily aggregate and agilely edit your project tasks.

Support for Scrum, Kanban and interval methods
In addition to Scrum and Kanban, CONTACT's Task Board technology supports so-called interval boards. Here the task boards provide the instruments for a time-controlled agile procedure in time periods with project boards and team boards. Planning view for backlog and interval planning, task board view for detailed planning and processing in the current interval as well as review of completed intervals. CONTACT's Task Board technology also includes comprehensive dashboard functions that make central project information accessible on mobile devices.


Agile handling of project tasks and open issues with personal, team or project-related boards

Optimally combine agility and reliability with hybrid methodology

In most projects, there are sub-areas that should be accomplished by using classical methods as well as sub-areas where an agile approach makes sense or is even necessary. Support hybrid project management methods with CONTACT Agile Methods and combine the reliability of classical framework planning with the dynamics, implementation speed and self-organization of agile procedures.

Support planning and execution equally
Your project managers can use proven methods to create classic framework planning top-down by means of deadlines, resources and milestones and can directly read off the project's progress. Process templates, Gantt charts and plan specifications for the teams are a direct component of your working environment. Your project teams support you with agile tools such as activity streams and task boards for their value-adding tasks in the actual development work.


Support both top-down planning and bottom-up value creation with Agile Methods
