Many comparisons have been made to prove one tool’s superiority over the other or – on the contrary – to show distinctions that make each tool more or less useful in various use cases. Surely, Trello allows teams to organize their projects visually while Jira is unbeatable in its management structure – it can keep even large teams well-coordinated and on track.
Jira gives us an ability to log time spent on a particular issue directly to it. Thank to this we can fairly accurately see how time is being spent in our organization – thanks to built-in Jira reports or apps that allow enhanced time-based reports.
Not all things are either black or white, and the same story goes for Jira issues. If your only options were to mark the assignment either done or merely not, it wouldn’t speak the whole truth about how a workflow for a task looks like, wouldn’t it?
As with everything in this prone-to-forgetting universe, some crucial tasks that must be completed before marking a given issue as “done” will be forgotten once in a while. As you probably know, even the most detailed and thought through plan means little if not executed due to the faulty of human memory.
Metrics are essential to keep track of businesses and teams. They are useful tools for planning, adapting, and understanding how our projects are progressing and how well our team is working. Metrics let us know whether we need to make changes or just keep up our good work.
