Tracking in Jira: Aussie Wine and much more!

May 20, 2014

Tracking in Jira? Yes Please!

I am sending out a cool link from the Atlassian blog by Sarah Goff-Dupont. I am an unashamed Aussie red wine enthusiast and I am a big fan of tracking in Jira. Using wine as an example, it goes to prove you can track anything you need to manage in Jira.

Seriously though, I am a real believer in managing what matters (MWM) – and managing wine is a classic example of this.  We advocate creating issue types to reflect whatever you need to manage – i.e. objectives, products and  incidents, really anything – is the best way to use Jira.

The important point is to create standard issue definition and use them everywhere. This is a key value add of our methodology,  Synthesis.

Hey but let’s get honest here. We would really like Atlassian to change the term “issue” to item. A bottle of good Australian wine is certainly no issue!

The link to the full post can be found here: http://blogs.atlassian.com/2014/05/life-runs-jira-sommelier-edition/.

Also to continue along my wine fuelled rant. I recommend Kilikanoon Killerman’s Run Shiraz. In Canada you can pickup a bottle for under $20 a bottle. In conclusion, a bargain!
