I was in Bangalore for a few days, in part to attend the Agile India 2015 conference. The Sunday morning after the conference got done, I decided to go for a walk.

That immediately put me on Kasturba Road. I thought fleetingly, “Of course, Kasturba Gandhi (Road) had to be next to her husband Mahatma Gandhi (MG) Road!”

Sir Richard Branson says, “In two hours in flow I can accomplish tremendous things.” Read More…
Highlight Cards at Risk of Delay
Wouldn’t you love to have your Kanban board tell you what cards might be about to get delayed? SwiftKanban can now give you visual cue when cards may be at risk of delay! You can configure the number of days you want a card to be highlighted before the card’s ‘deadline date’. You can do this for different thresholds on different boards – this is a project level setting.
