Another week, another Topic Tuesday! Agile has been on my mind a lot lately because I've seen good implementations and bad implementations, but now as a Jira admin it matters more to me whether we are doing the 'right' things. I used to wonder if Jira was too biased in it's approach to Agile (see posts like How do you plan subtasks into separate sprints?), but now I wonder if many of us are too liberal with Agile--how far from an established process can you get before you start to lose the advantages it was designed to achieve?
In any case, the more you fight your tools, the harder you make things for yourself and I'm starting to feel that pain in some ways.
How has your Agile journey been? Do you have ongoing training and follow the processes religiously, or do you find yourself diverging? How has Jira helped or hindered your journey?
