To me this seems less like planning and more like task tracking. Everybody alread knows / has decided what the task they had to perform on each day so it was a simple matter of executing and recording the results. The hard part of planning - breaking the problems into small tasks and deciding the order of execution based on dependencies, deciding whether something is even worth doing, etc. was only summarily covered.

Well, it's planning, just on a daily scale. This process does not compete with pivotal tracker or basecamp, which is for planning and tracking our progress on a larger scale.

If we're bottlenecked or dependent on another person or deliverable, it doesn't make it on to the board.

But I agree, this process does not aim to decide what is worth doing.
