Our team looks like this
- 4 developers
- 2 testers
- 1 Boss (Product owner, CEO etc.)
- A designer
We have tried 4 different boards till now. Assembla, Youtrack, JIRA as scrum and JIRA as Kanban. Every single time, what ends up happening is that the list of tickets grows and becomes pretty large and becomes unapproachable from my perspective. There are about 250 unresolved issues. I would never want to go through that list and pick something out of it.
As a whole team, we have sometimes given up on long lists of issues and we have moved on to create new boards hoping to have a good process. But we have not achieved this at all.
We always go back to something like a simple todo list or an excel sheet till we delete everything and start a new board. A list of 10 items seems far more easier to fathom than say 250. How can we fix this?
