Favro Cards can be used in a multitude of ways: writing, content creation, goals, OKRs, tasks, attachments… whatever you’re collaborating on. Teams can even communicate and provide real-time feedback directly on the Cards.
The work described on a Card often involves multiple teams with their own workflows. Therefore a card can exist on multiple Favro Boards facilitating cross-team collaboration. Boards can easily be configured by the teams themselves to adapt to any style of planning and management. The Cards on the Board can be viewed in various ways such as Kanban, sheet or timeline view.
Favro Boards can exist in multiple Favro Collections. Collections are a single-screen aggregation of multiple Boards organized for teams to see exactly what they need in order to focus on their own work, while also collaborating with other teams to deliver the most company-wide value.
Typical examples of Favro Collections are (a) team collaboration Collections, (b) cross-team collaboration Collections, (c) Collections for a common workplace between teams at two companies, and (d) Collections serving as dashboards for a recurring meeting or context.
Collections drive overall alignment removing the requirement for complex enterprise program and portfolio tools.
With the ability to have Cards on multiple Boards and Boards within multiple Collections, as well as links, dependencies, and work breakdowns, Favro Relations are what tie it all together. Relations show everyone how your company actually interacts and provide natural navigation between all horizontal teams and all vertical levels of the organization.
With the unique Favro Relations no single central person needs to know and control everything. Everyone can simply follow the Relations and go on a journey discovering how things are connected in their organization.
