I have been watching some Eric Brechner talks on Kanban. It all makes sense for us and I can really see his vision of Kanban working well for our team. The new thing that Eric brought to the table for me was the splitting of a column into two columns.
I am a big fan of Jira, but I could not find a way of achieving Eric's version of Kanban with it. Am I missing something? Or is it true that this cannot be done in Jira?
Ah thanks for letting me know that! Is there any way to see that request?
I show a great video about how VSTS does this and would love to see this in Jira.
@Ian Ceicys I have just posted my workaround solution for this issue on another board if interested: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-Core-questions/Configure-board-with-multiple-Todo-Done-columns/qaq-p/317003#M34646
I see one possible workaround to this problem:
To move an item to "Done/Ready", drag the item to the area representing the next state in the same column,
When people are about to pull an item to the next stage, they simply need to look in the "Ready" swimlane to see if something's available.
For the cumulative flow and cycle charts, you may need an external tool to combine statuses together.
Normally the pairs to combine for the cumulative flow are not the same as the stages. In the example above, "Backlog" and "Analyzing" go together, then "Analyzed" & "Developing" and so on (because progress is only made when a stage is completed).
