Teams Board

In order to visualize who works in which team, we introduced a team board in our company:
On the left is the team name, right to it the people working in the team. The blue index cards are used for the product owners, the yellow cards for the UX designers, the green ones for the team. The Scrum Masters and Kanban Coaches are indicated by the white circle.

Keeping track of changes

Finding a bugs' origin can be really annoying at times and quite often bugs are introduced by recent releases. In order to easily keep track of what happened when (mostly releases), we introduced a "timeline":

As you can see this timeline is simply a large sheet of paper where we write down date, time and a short description of the change, be it a release or an activated feature. This way, when a bug comes up, we can easily look up, if the error started on the date of the change, raising the odds to find the bug quickly.
