How Stepsize Transformed Standups at OpusFlow and saved 25+ hours per week
OpusFlow is a 30-person software development company designed to enhance productivity for companies within the sustainability industry. Every process is managed within OpusFlow, starting from the initial concept, all the way down to the final invoice.
William, a Product Owner at OpusFlow, realised that the team was spending too much time and effort on their daily team standups. Each team member would manually submit an update, which would vary in terms of quality depending on how much time the team had to think about what they had done.
Collectively, the team spent about 5 working hours per day, creating and consuming standups. William felt that this time could be spent on value-adding work instead.
The Stepsize Solution
William implemented Stepsize AI, a tool that automatically generates and distributes key updates based on his team's activity, including key results, blockers and opportunities. Some of the benefits that were observed included:
- Efficiency: Stepsize AI didn’t require manual input when creating daily summaries, so the team suddenly found itself with more time on its hands.
- Quality: The updates were better than the manual ones, as Stepsize AI had more context about everything that happened in the organisationorganization and surfaced key blockers and opportunities.
- Consistency and Onboarding: The consistent flow and quality of updates meant that team members would always read them. They were also beneficial in onboarding new employees, as they could easily read the updates for the last few days to get up to speed
OpusFlow were able to save more than 25 working hours per week and dramatically improve their standup experience by implementing Stepsize. It is now a core part of their collaboration process.
“Stepsize AI is actually scary good. It has completely replaced our stand-up process without any manual input and reduced the amount of team meetings, saving us more than 25 hours per week.” - William, Product Owner at OpusFlow
