I’m relatively new in my current job — working on 6 months now. I was speaking with another manager and the conversation drifted to the first changes my team implemented after I joined. But, as every good change agent knows, before you implement changes, you have to orient and observe.

Hi Julia, 

Are you using Kanban in your current work? In my last project where we had kanban, we had kanban dashboard, where you have all your defects, test case scenario (our reqs) displayed on left hand side. It was all first come first to choose the task. So your time will be saved in assigning tasks. And there will be more transparency. And as it is visible to everyone, you won't miss anything as we know our of sight our of mind.

So as each task was addressed, it will move to the right side of the dashboard through different status columns. Once completed it comes on the right side column.

I hope this helps. Please let me know.
