Physical boards are great artifacts that go far beyond agile development. Spartez has been sold to this idea years ago. But how does the consumption of paper cards on boards impact the environment? Do electronic displays really save trees?
Individuals tend to prefer one communication channel over another. However, to keep reaching goals as a team, you must use both written and spoken words. The power of JIRA in agile project tracking is unbeatable. It's all about speed and transparency.

With the new release of Agile Cards for JIRA updating your physical agile board is quick and any team member can do it.
