JIRA is an antipattern

JIRA is an antipattern

I tend to agree with the author, but he is pointing in the right direction to correct the issue: using text/prose to describe the project as whole. I think he maybe missing though that most companies that end up getting JIRA, don't get JIRA alone, but also get other bits of the Atlassian stack -- which includes Confluence. Confluence is the correct place for what he calls the "macro vision" view. And for those, who don't go all in with Atlassian, other Wiki software or SharePoint provide that high level view that is meant to be the cohesive force.

As for the author's other point that JIRA encourages the attitude of "just get done with this ticket/issue", I have to agree wholeheartedly. It gets much worse when management is looking at velocity exactly the way Scrum tells managers not to look at it: as a measure of productivity. Then the pressure to just close out the ticket gets even more intense.
