re: I've felt this way about Jira for awhile, while the tool is nice and can communicate certain things, it feels restrictive in many ways. Overall it...
 

sticky notes on a white board is the Paleo version of Scrum/Agile.

I want this on a cross stitch and hung up in my cubicle :)

It also depends on the individual managers, too. For some reason, we have an acronym level person with access to our board which then makes them nag the PM when something is pending acceptance. We also have a customer with access to the board, so we need nice, neat customer friendly names for features. Implement x becomes Fix y because they don't like y (which was an early requirement, not a bug) and don't care how it's technically implemented via x.

I've suggested having another Jira instance for developers only. The PM didn't take that well :P Though we moved from Rally to Jira, so it's a person thing, not a tool thing.
