How To Use Kudo Cards

  • What are Kudo Cards?

  • What are they used for?

  • How do we use them in agile retrospective?

It is an undeniable fact that sometimes gratitude helps us become motivated. If you want to run an agile team successfully, you need to motivate your team members constantly to speed up your plans / sprints. And motivation helps a lot! 

While raising your employee's salaries will likely increase their motivation, the feeling is often short-lived. New research, however, finds that a simple "thank you" often has a much more lasting impact. And to raise positivity, the best option is to appreciate your team member through gratitude. But for some people, sending gratitude is not easy. As they have some fair series of reasons such as:

  1. The person they want to motivate, might not be that much familiar / close.

  2. They do not want to waste their valuable time creating a card, make it look good, or write extravagant speech - people sure are busy.

  3. They are not used to appreciating others.


These problems can be easily solved. If you use Kudo Cards from Agilibo (Archibo’s new product - developed to serve your needs), you might find gratifying your teammates one of the easiest jobs!

Generally, Kudo Cards play the role of a physical token of appreciation. The cards can be placed in a box, and every now and then the Kudo Box is emptied and the workers celebrate those who had received a card. Maybe once per day, or once per week, the systems vary across organizations. The only boring part is, these cards are not for free. The whole box must be bought first.

Agilibo has reintroduced Kudo card in a much digital and user-friendly way. Using Agilibo, there’s no need to buy them, you can send them easily and quickly!

Not Just a “thank you”, you can customize to suit your personal heading!

Using Kudo Cards in Agilibo is really easy. You just have to log in to your account (if you already have, else you have to sign up. Go to and sign up for free) and create an agile team.
