Find out about how KanBo will help you to lead a team and how it captures the essence of leadership with the following features.
Transparency builds trust
When it comes to purpose-driven teams, trust is the most important ingredient in the recipe for success. KanBo’s MyBoard leverages transparency to build and maintain trust for improved coordination.
The MyBoard is a part of KanBo where employees can organize their own workload, so it meets their current priorities. Not only does it serve as employees’ personal space to prioritize and organize work, it also helps leaders get a 360 degree view of work with full transparency. KanBo lets them see the current status of the employee with one click through their MyBoard. If the employee is occupied or free for work to be assigned, MyBoard lets you know it all.
Sharing MyBoards - Employees can also share their MyBoard with others to ensure better visibility of work and improve coordination within teams. The sharing of MyBoards can be enabled for all KanBo users in the entire organization by default, by some rules (i.e. based on Active Directory Manager Property) or by the employees themselves.
Flight Levels of Work
Adjust hierarchies of work layers on the fly
KanBo has a generic system of hierarchy levels that can be applied to represent any structure i.e. a strategy broken down in initiatives, projects, work packages and tasks. These hierarchies let you manage the amount of detail you wish to view. Here is the basic hierarchy to get you started:
- Boards Level At the highest level there are the Board Collections. They consist of Board Groups, which contain Boards. Each Board can be contained by many Board Groups and consequently by many Board Collections.
- Cards Level Going deeper into a Board you will find Board Lists. On Board Lists there are Cards.
- Sub-Cards Inside of Cards there are Sub-Cards that can exist in the same Board or also in other Boards.
- Beyond Sub-Cards As you would expect a Sub-Card can have another set of Sub-Cards and so on.
You can build your own “Flight Levels” (hierarchies) according to your business needs and restructure them whenever you think you need to keep up with the changes. The higher you “fly”, you have more of an overview with fewer details. The lower you “fly”, you can see more details but no longer the entire landscape. On each level KanBo uses different aggregation mechanisms to consolidate and display information in the most intuitive way. Have a good flight!
