Agile Practices using Jira Atlassian
The more we meet software development organizations, the more we see how Jira, the most popular ALM tool out there, is being misused. Abusing the tool is quite easy actually… Paraphrasing Tolstoy’s words from Anna Karenina, “Good Jira implementations are all alike but unhappy implementations are all unhappy in their own way”. (In AgileSparks we keep a warm place for the classics). We have seen many cases where the abuse of the tool caused frustrations and inconsistencies with the Agile mindset that put at risk the ability to benefit from Agile practices adopted by the organization.
