Our company is an events, paper and digital publishing company (ie not specialist software house!).
We use JIRA and Greenhopper ondemand. We have numerous small, but often complex, projects.
Our problem is knowing how to use stories to best effect. Here's our workflow
The problem is we don't really know what to do with the stories once we have created the tasks - they just seem to get in the way.
Are we missing something?
Please can you suggest the best way for us to utilise stories in the life cycle?
The main thing here is to do away with the Stories right? Either you resolve them or don't include them in the board.
What I can recommend is to do away with the Tasks and use Stories only. Create two boards. One board captures the 1st half of your process/workflow and the 2nd board captures the 2nd part of the workflow.
If that's the case, you don't add stories to the board. You have 2 boards. You can use the Script Runner (https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/GRV/Script+Runner) add on to create validators on when you can resolve issues based on another issue.
As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
