Dejirafication: free your process from tools

  1. 1. Dejirafication free your process @alexeykrv #ale16
  2. 2. Most companies use some sort of backlog management tools…
  3. 3. There are many different ones… but i’ll just call them ‘jira’
  4. 4. Inventories are wasteful
  5. 5. That’s how Most PBR meetings feel like
  6. 6. PBR is where the team to meet with the tool
  7. 7. Printed jira issues Time-boxed discussions Break-out groups working in parallel Updates to jira after the meeting Some ideas that I’ve tried to improve the meetings: Result: just less badly jirafied meetings.
  8. 8. Jirandicitis (or the ‘jira symptom’) An observable process when team collaboration (such as a meeting) is degrading to become a plain tool-updating activity (with a sole goal of updating the tool).
