Who should use Agemba

Agemba — key Features
- Dashboard. This gives instant, user-based overviews for everyone in the organization. Customization Dashlets present vital data, providing status updates and key action items.
- Circle Map. The Circle Map supports a “Team-of-Teams” organizational structure allowing project elements to be designed, described, analyzed, delegated, documented and supervised, providing transparency of goals, solutions, progress, risks and impediments.
- Story Map. The key to success with complex projects is to always know the truth and the facts of the situation, i.e. to be at “gemba”.
The Circle and Story Maps are key points from which to visualize the organization and project status in an easy to understand two dimensional structure. It is a combination of a mind map and spreadsheet which constantly aggregates information for the specific interest for the user, providing focus and better alignment between collaborating parties.
- Road Map and Outline views offer a unique combination of Story Map (a functional breakdown) and a Timeline, which shows external dependencies such as plan projections, due dates, availability etc. In complex projects the worst dependencies are those linked to time. The Road Map and Outline provide an opportunity to understand the time constraints and assess the main challenges to the project. All views also contain a “details pane” which provides context and aids prioritization.
- List View provides one-off snapshots of unique data sets and/or custom views that can be exported to a user’s Dashboard, to a spreadsheet, or a third party application through its advanced API, the List View is a powerful analytical tool for querying, filtering and sorting Agemba’s database, including all historical and statistical data.
