Getting Physical with Jira. Using a physical Kaban and Scrum boards with Jira.

This session I will review how we used a physical Kaban board and post-it notes with Jira and the Agile Cards plugin to sort through a sea over 500 of Jira issues in various states of progress. The process was complicated by a large number of projects with inconsistent workflows and confusing states ("In Review" could mean in code review or in QA review). I will review how the team members worked to examine and group issues, place them into the right state, abandoning some, moving others to the back log and prioritizing the rest. I will also show how having a physical board change the nature of our stand-ups and how we updated Jira to match the board.

(at the current time this is still a work in progress, but I will add to the presentation as we work towards a mature system).
