What is Agile Design Management?

Agile Design Management is the adaptation of Scrum to the planning phases of building projects. Since the determining factors in the construction industry are fundamentally different than those of Software Development, Agile Design Management is a hybrid of classic phase planning and Scrum.

Agility in this scenario primarily means flexibility in relation to the goal to be achieved. Optimizing the processes itself as with Lean is not the top priority here.

Some key elements of Agile Design Management involve:

The tools used in Agile Design Management enable an eye-catching and transparent view of the planned tasks – e.g. Kanban Boards and the like…  

Thus, this framework and method helps to uncover planning conflicts at a very early stage and ensures the adherence to delivery dates.

How does kanDO | Agile Projects support Agile Design Management?

kanDO | Agile Projects is a software solution that enables Project Mangers and their Teams to successfully facilitate Agile Design Management in the digital age.

After the project setup and the process analysis of the planning phase are complete, project managers can continue with the actual task management in kanDO and begin to create work packages for the different teams.

The timeline displays all work packages in relation to their planning phase. Delivery dates can be determined by simply dragging the different elements from the left onto the timeline canvas. Milestones as defined in the Context Setup are also integrated in the timeline.

Planning conflicts and exceeded deadlines are prominently highlighted. In this case the view has switched to show tasks in relation to their parent work packages.

Work packages and tasks can be managed on the Kanban Board. The many different grouping and filtering options allow for displaying different conditions and leverage the collaboration between the different planning teams (e.g. ARCH, HKLS, ELT etc.).
