Batches serve as a versatile tool for visualizing, planning, and monitoring various aspects of an organization. The flexible structure allows the use of Batches for

  • Products

  • Product Releases

  • Line of Business

  • Strategic Themes/Area

  • Or other possible use cases, depending on your organization

Type of Batches

There are two types of Batches

  • Batch Group

  • Batch/Sub-Batch

Batch Groups function as the overarching entity, allowing for the creation of sub-batches within them. This hierarchical structure enables the management of independent Batches. For instance, you can employ a set of Batches to oversee products while dedicating another Batch Group to track a distinct aspect of your organization's journey.

Example 1: Core Banking visualized as Batches

Example 2: Integrated Channel Management as Batches

Batch Details

Each Batch has 5 sections

  • Activities

  • Details

  • Linked Items

  • OKRs

  • Relations

The most important ones are Details & Linked Items.

In the details section of a Batch, there are pre-defined fields that, in the future, you will be able to customize. Currently, you can fill out the details in the relevant sections of a batch. This helps to define a business case, details, or product segment.

Linked Items

Following the definition of a Batch, the subsequent step involves planning and monitoring the associated contents. The Linked Items section enables you to search for and link items to the Batches.

In Org views, you can integrate Epics, Features, Stories, and other issue types from your ALMs (such as Jira/Azure DevOps) or create Kendis-only cards. The search functionality facilitates the connection of your Batch to selected items from these collections.


Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) present a robust framework for establishing goals and corresponding achievement criteria. While typically employed at the Organizational, Collection, and Program Board levels, incorporating OKRs into Batch views empowers you to effectively define and pursue SMART goals for each Batch.

List View of Batches

Batches can be viewed in a Tree view or a List view. The list view makes it easier to create and manage sub-batches
