SCRUM For SysAdmin/DevOps Workflow

At $WORK we are using agile workflow (SCRUM) for Sysadmin/DevOps team. It had been a pain in the beginning, but recently it started to pay off, once we got some details right.

We use Jira and whiteboard + sticky notes to track the whole process. Operational/support Items are tracked in a continuous "Kanban"-like process -- note "SUPPORT" area in the middle of the board.

Let me know if you'd like to know more, and we are hiring.

Here is how our SCRUM board looked at the end of the sprint (Fri last week)
