Give your team superpowers with this awesome team board

UPDATE: Read new detail about team superpowers here.

Your team can achieve great things.

You don’t need the world’s most talented individuals, but you do need great teamwork.

Leicester famously won the Premier League with teamwork, not individual talent.

You need laser focus, deep collaboration and “user-centricity”.

Zenboard is a new team board that makes all of this easier. (Demo here).

Here’s how…

1. Laser focus

Tools like Trello and JIRA focus on tasks, but businesses are more interested in features and outcomes. Zenboard makes it easy to visualise features and desired outcomes as well as the associated tasks.

Having a clear goal isn’t enough though, team’s also need an easy way to organise their work.

Zenboard is simpler than JIRA and less restrictive than Trello (and other Kanban boards).

2. Collaboration

Zenboard’s layout makes it easier to see where collaboration is needed.

But Zenboard goes further: AI coaching. Here are a couple of examples…

1. If there is too much work in progress then Zenboard will suggest that you help with that before starting something new.

2. If you start work on a card and it has no details then Zenboard might say, “Not clear what’s required? Conversation beats documentation”.

These are simple nudges that promote good habits and a healthy team culture.

3. User-centric

Zenboard gives desired outcomes more visibility.

Focusing on outcomes instead of outputs opens more doors for experimentation and learning what your users really want.

This is a key part of the Lean Startup and Modern Agile movements.

Don’t worry if you’re unfamiliar with Lean Startup or Modern Agile, Zenboard’s AI coaching will guide you in the right direction.

To sum up

Zenboard doesn’t have all the answers, but it will move your team in the right direction – focused, collaborative and user-centric.

Caveat: Zenboard is a work in progress!
