Storyteller offers a simple way for users to share their stories, while allowing other stakeholders to interject with their thoughts and comments.
How do we simplify the process of Digital Transformation for companies adjusting to Agile in an Enterprise environment.
Almost every company as a different flavour of Agile. Some are agile to the book, some are hybrids, some are waterfall thinking they are agile, others just wing it with whatever works best for them. Regardless, it's fair to say that Agile is a very important workflow process that so many try to get right, but how?

TITLE OF THE CALLOUT BLOCK
Creating products from the "ether" is not easy, but if you can use your past experiences and references you can pull for these to create something great.
We pulled our idea from a simple "site map" concept, and look what it grew into. Awesome!
Many people are familiar with visual hierarchy.
We used this familiarity and simple boxes that can be arranged in a flow that can be understood by the user, the way they want it. Then with smart developers and architecture it becomes pretty simple to comprehend.
Now, imagine using Blueprint Storyteller to organize you life tasks?
Now that's would be an interesting "workflow".
