Teams track progress in many different ways. Most commonly I see variations on a burn down chart. But if you’re finding that a little bit boring, then there’s no reason not to get creative to illustrate progress.
Here’s an idea from a team working their way through every country in the world. Each country gets coloured in as it is completed. Stakeholders can see the progress as it happens, and also whether the country they are interested in has been completed yet. If you click on the image below, the animation shows the progress over a few weeks.

A card spike

Katie says: “There’s something really satisfying about spiking the completed cards at the end of each iteration”.
Here’s another take on what to do with the cards once the iteration is complete – stick them on a custom-made giant spike and top it off with a unicorn!
It’s important for a team to recognise the progress that they’ve made over a series of iterations. Watching the cards rise higher and higher up the spike is satisfying and a visual indicator of how much work the team has done.
