Execute the Growth Plan
Building a quality Growth Plan during the retrospective is a great start, but the real work comes as the team takes action to improve in the areas they have identified as the highest priority Team Growth Items. The ScrumMaster of the team will keep the plan visible and help the team to break the Growth Items down into smaller stories and tasks that can be completed within an iteration.
- Bring Growth Items into your regular iterations/sprints
- Update Growth Item progress
- Add Notes to Growth Items
- Add Solutions to Growth Items
Bring Growth Items into Your Regular Iterations/Sprints
Kanban board tracking status - In Progress and Done
You can use the Kanban board in AgilityHealth® to track progress on the Growth Plan. You can see all the Team’s Growth Items on the Team’s Growth Item Dashboard or you can go into each assessment’s results and view Growth Items related to that specific assessment. Organizational Items will be pulled and worked by the Leadership Team, so focus on the Team Growth Items.
Use the Growth Portal as a Resource
As you are working on the Growth Items as a team, you can return to the Growth Portal to explore helpful videos and resources on the competencies you are working on.
Update Growth Item Progress
As the team makes progress on a growth plan item, the Growth Plan Item panel is were you will be making the majority of your updates. To edit a growth item, click the edit icon in the upper right hand corner of the card in the Kanban board for that item.
The Edit Growth Plan Item card will open.
Team Admins will mainly add information to the description of the Growth Item, add or change the acceptance criteria and update the status.
Add Notes to Growth Items
You can add notes to the Growth Items by clicking on the edit icon on the card to open the Growth Item and then selecting the Notes tab.
Add a Solution to Growth Items
If a Growth Item has been completed, be sure to fill in the Solutions section. By adding a solution to a Growth Item, the rest of the teams within your organization can see how your Growth Item was completed and may be able to use that information in their own journey.
Enter a description of what the team or individual did to complete the Growth Item in the Solutions tab.
