IdeaWeavers uses the Scrum version of Agile Development Methodology. We meet every two weeks to plan our sprints, hold daily standup meetings, and use story points to estimate every user story. We use CommonThread to track everything including managing the backlog, assigning stories to sprints, defining user story acceptance criteria, and tracking user story blockers. But most importantly, CommonThread has enabled us to easily create a burndown report that we use each sprint to track our team’s velocity. In that way we can accurately predict how much work we can accomplish in each sprint. Using CommonThread, we have removed the complexity of Agile and simplified it to an easily repeatable process.
