New Whiteboarding Templates for Agile Workflow, OKR, Brainstorming and More

In today's challenging remote and hybrid work environments, SmartDraw's new set of whiteboarding templates will help your team work together, analyze problems, capture new ideas, and make big decisions as if you were in the same room. You can now use SmartDraw to make:

  • Kanban Boards
  • PI Planning Boards
  • OKRs
  • Customer Journey Maps
  • Brainwriting

Kanban Boards

SmartDraw's new Kanban templates will help you visually plan your agile workflow. You'll be able to quickly see issues in your backlog, get a sense of what's in progress and what's been completed. You can also create your own columns or rows to see tasks across departments and cross-functional teams.

Kanban Board Example

PI Planning Boards

Program Increment (PI) Planning is usually a face-to-face event during which all the teams on an Agile Release Train (ART) come together to plan out their work for the next five iterations. It is a critical part of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®).

It usually involves teams, stakeholders, and product owners - all in a single room - using a lot of sticky notes and string.

SmartDraw's online PI planning board will let your teams continue to be effective and collaborate remotely. You'll be able to arrive at the same clear objectives all team members agree to and a program board that highlights dependencies and milestones without incurring the cost of flying everyone to be in the same room.

PI Board Example

OKR Templates

OKR stands for objectives and key results. SmartDraw's new OKR templates can help your team align strategy with business goals. Your team can collaborate on a vision and make sure everyone agrees and sees what concrete initiatives and action items are needed across cross-functional teams to achieve success.

Using SmartDraw, you will be able to set an objective and agree on all the key activities that will lead to measurable results. You can also break down objectives by teams to help clarify responsibilities and make sure everyone is on the same page.

OKR Example

Customer Journey Maps

Customer journey maps (CJM) let your team visualize how a user interacts with your product or service. Using SmartDraw's customer journey templates you can map out every phase or milestone your customer may experience interacting with your brand from becoming aware you exist to purchasing or subscribing. You can visualize actions, emotions, and pain points necessary to help you understand how customers achieve their goals and how you can help them.
