What is a Scrum Board?

What is a Scrum Board?

An online scrum board is a visual project management tool that visually displays the necessary information of a scrum project. It shows stories and the sprint backlog allowing anyone to get the general idea of what’s happening at a glance.

What are the Key Elements of a Scrum Board?

An online scrum board or physical scrum board is divided into three vertical columns. These include:

1. To do - User stories and tasks that are to be commenced. These are represented as cards or sticky notes with details such as the owner and due dates.

2. Work in progress - This includes the items that the team is currently working on.

3. Done - This includes the list of completed items.

How to Create a Scrum Board?

  1. Create your workspace in Creately and select a premade online scrum board template. Share it with the team members you wish to collaborate with.

  2. Select the user story you and your team want to work on during the sprint and add it to the board as a card. Additional details on the card can be stored via the data fields.

  3. Split the user stories into individual tasks and move them to the to-do column.

  4. As the sprint progresses, move the task cards onto the correct column; from to-do to in progress to done, etc.

  5. Once the task is completed, start working on the next card in the to-do column. To differentiate between each of the tasks, use different colors from the preset color themes in Creately.

  6. Connect with your team on Creately to review and discuss the sprint tasks and come up with solutions for the problems faced during the sprint.

What is the difference between an online scrum board and a kanban board?
Both Kanban boards and scrum boards use principles of agile and lean approaches to track project status. While a Kanban board is usually used throughout the lifecycle of a project, a scrum board is renewed at the end of each sprint. A scrum board uses a set number of tasks and strict deadlines that need to be adhered to. On the other hand, Kanban boards are more flexible with no mandatory requirements for estimation.

How to effectively organize an online scrum board?
  • Make it easily accessible to everyone involved in updating it.
  • Keep it simple without adding too many columns or swimlanes. The simpler it is, the easier it is to understand.
