In Agile software development, key artefacts used to support the process are the User Story
(usually recorded on a Storycard) and Story Cardwall (usually a dedicated portion of a
wall). These low-fidelity tools work together to help teams stay focused and self-manage
their projects. The need to support distributed teams and team members makes the physical
Cardwall impractical and teams are therefore migrating towards digital story management
tools. We wanted to learn how to design a digital Cardwall that leverages the benefits
of the physical Cardwall, while adding more value with
features only possible in a software
system. We conducted field studies of Agile teams and performed qualitative data analysis to
understand the needs for digital Cardwalls. We then used these findings to identify guidelines
for future design.
