Everytime Agile process is to be followed, teams are confused as to which workflow to follow from start of stories until storied are accepted.
Personally I do not blame people since there is no dearth of factors surrounding the teams that lead to this confusion (problem of plenty)
Going by above prolog, I tend to fall in this situation time and time again. Some of the major causes for this confusion are following
- Every agile tool vendor provides few workflow options.
- People on the project have few of their own from previous lives, including me.
- Every agile trainer supplements few more options (which trainer deems) are suitable to the environment.
By no means, my intention is to imply that following approach is a one size fits all but I have found this approach to work with more than 1 client and on more than 1 project at the same client hence decided to put it here to help broader community.
