How to combat progress blockers with JIRA and a physical board

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. But, to deal with blockers faster and less painfully, I recommend using verbal communication and a big physical board at your daily scrum. With the new release of Agile Cards for JIRA updating your physical agile board is quick and any team member can do it.

Tracking the sprint goal on a physical board

In most sprints, there are two types of tasks. One type leads to the sprint goal. The other type includes those “emergent tasks” that teams experience either as external pressure or as the unavoidable internal tasks. With two simple daily practices, the physical board can help teams stay the course and deliver the iteration goal.

With Agile Cards you can

Print pinboard cards directly from JIRA

You can print cards for whole groups of issues or just single cards representing issues you want to focus on.

Automatically upload your pinboard status to JIRA

The codes printed on cards carry information which allows JIRA to interpret your pinboard photo and automatically update the status and resolution of the appropriate issues.

Customize your cards and pinboard

Agile Cards for JIRA are fully configurable. You can define your own sets of printed fields, fonts and margin sizes as well as the number of cards to be printed per paper sheet.
