Discussion on: Is Jira an antipattern?

No. The culture is the antipattern.

Remember - Individuals and interactions over processes and tools.

The tool should adapt to how your team works - change the jira workflow. Organizations should adapt to how the dlivery teams need to work. In Agile, everything is built on trust and transparency.

The real problem is leadership took a 2 day certificate class and parade around as they know everything. Then hire people that know nothing and press for results on a waterfall budget while monitor using waterfall KPIs. Add in the marketing hype and your back to a sprint being a mini-waterfall or in SAFe (program increment). Agile and its tools are being abused right now.
