Abstract [en]

This paper is about the use of task boards in agile system development projects. The main focus is on how digitalized versions of the task board can be of assistance during the development process. Our investigation is based on qualitative studies, with system developers of various backgrounds and professional roles, along with studies of relevant literature. The main results are that a digitized version of the task board can increase awareness for the team and be of major importance if it is accessible through the web. On the other hand negative effects of the digitalization can emerge as well.  Our conclusion is that the task board is actually more than just a physical object. It plays different roles to different people. Therefore companies need to examine the benefits of the existing task board and take in to account the different views of the personnel before making any drastic changes.
