Agile is the Word – Jira Does It

Had a great talk with a senior consultant @Lab. He told me about a group at a major bank that’s getting into Agile and loving it.

He recommended Jira and GreenHopper plug-in to manage the process.

JIRA combines issue tracking, agile project management, customizable workflow, and a pluggable integration framework to increase the velocity of your software development team.

Starter packs of 10 licenses are only $10, so you can’t lose.

This is an unsolicited endorsement.  I’m not making a penny off this, but if anyone wants to send me some, I’m OK with that too.

  1. Whatever system is used there is no substitution for visual keys. Jira is excellent for tracking and can be linked into Eclipse tasks which is handy. Being able to glance at a whiteboard with this iterations tasks on it is better though.

    A board with three zones is good, To do, Work in progress and done. Task cards with jira numbers track who is working on what. People actually get up and move the cards around….radical! 😉

    Its fine to use systems but people work better with something they can gather around and argue about.
