What’s different about our Agile wisdom cards?
With BeautifulAgile Agile-Wisdom cards, the Thinking AND the Doing have been done for you. Years of experimenting with physical cards has resulted in hours and hours of time being saved for you. It generally takes between 3 and 5 minutes to complete a system card fully. Because of all of the Agile-wisdom in the BeautifulAgile cards, you can divert all of that saved time onto higher order items (you still need to write the epics, stories, tasks & the details to enable metrics-driven performance) but we’ve done the rest. Yay Us!!You’ll also see Agile-wisdom in the way you can use the cards. We hope you’ll love this feature as much as we do!
The power of Visualising your work
Visualising work, using the BeautifulAgile Agile-wisdom cards, on shared walls (whiteboards, windows, blackboards) creates transparency. The team, and stakeholders, can observe the flow and patterns of work and provide feedback on progressing to outcomes.
Visualisation benefits include:
- Focus for teams
- eliminating wasteacting as information
- supporting metrics-driven performance

Agile-wisdom cards have helped us better structure our kanban wall and keep the team focused on the most important tasks. And, made it really easy to visualise what's blocking our progress so we follow up and don't let tasks drag on and on.
The structured story cards have really supported newcomers to agile in adapting to new ways of working, and re-inforcing the right disciplines for the broader team. As well as looking great they're also saving us time by keeping the focus on the right things.
