Nureva announced the addition of connectors in Span Workspace to allow users to show dependencies between notes with red lines, as would be done during analog brainstorming sessions and structured activities like PI Planning.
Companies that have implemented frameworks such as Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and Scrum@Scale need digital alternatives as the changed work environment has forced them to collaborate remotely. Connectors easily spot which features or stories will not be delivered until multiple teams complete their dependencies. Because everyone can interact with the canvas at the same time, key details aren’t left out and risks are easier to identify and assess. Connectors also make it possible to spot at a glance the projects that have no dependencies at all – and can be completed independently. Connectors and other recently added features in Span Workspace, such as agile templates, starter canvases for agile activities and integration with Jira Software, help remote agile teams keep their ceremonies focused and collaborative.
Nureva Span Workspace is designed to support geographically dispersed teams engaged in highly collaborative activities that benefit from visualizing and interacting with information in real time, including structured processes such as agile and Scrum. It provides an expansive cloud-based digital canvas that can be tailored to suit virtually any collaborative process and draws upon familiar, simple and flexible tools including sticky notes, sketches, images, templates and screen sharing.
