Just published: JIRA Workflows from the Trenches @ NTT DATA EMEA Blog.
Atlassian’s JIRA (https://de.atlassian.com/software/jira) as a project management tool is actually an industry standard for the software projects. However the initial configuration of many aspect of JIRA leaves areas for improvements. This post focuses on the JIRA workflows, which define states for the issues, such as user stories and bug, and the transformations between them (also known as workflow or state machine).
All that based on my experience as a chief of development with real examples from my current project: quasi directly from the trenches.
