Jira Vs Human

I walked into a Backlog Refinement session with one person typing at a keyboard, a couple people interacting with him, and everyone else looking bored. We wrote the items on large Post-It Notes and put them on walls and tables instead. I scattered a bunch of blanks around the room. Just these changes seemed to bring it to life. Everyone got up and started interacting with the backlog and each other.
