Although I agree with most of Randall Cook's answer, I would like to add some additional things. Your requirements should be under configuration management and be controlled in some way. That is, you should be able to associate a given set of requirements (perhaps captured in a SRS document or a collection of user stories or a database or some other format) ...

Yes and no. Version control is about just that: control of revisions of assets, be they source code text files, images, or even documentation. While software engineers usually put source code and graphical assets (once they receive them) under version control, graphical assets and standards documents are often prepared by non-engineers. In my experience, ...

Scrum asks for an ordered backlog, not just a prioritized one. MoSCow can help you to do a course grain prioritization, but you need an ordering for a Scrum backlog. You could use MoSCoW to help you define an MVP but you will ultimately need to sort your backlog as Scrum would suggest. Using MoSCoW long term in Scrum doesn't make sense because the scope ...

Just to rephrase the question. You are blocked on scrum adoption because of the bug in JIRA? That sounds very wrong to me. Scrum is a project management methodology, it cannot depend on tools, tools are meant to be assisting with routine work, not impede it. Hence, my always advice, use physical board, see the progress looking at real tangible things. ...

What you apparently failed to do is what any large project needs: project management, documentation, planning, etc. etc. Yes, it's paperwork, it's not fun like coding, but it needs to be done. Make sub projects, modules, split things up according to functionality, define interfaces between those sub projects, document everything, have some diagrams (UML ...

As with any naming question it's hard to say that anything is incorrect, but it would definitely be misleading and/or confusing to use the term "framework" for this. The term "framework" normally refers to something like ASP.NET which provides necessary features like session management, but doesn't impose any particular page hierarchy. Using "skeleton" seems ...

So let's clear up the question a little bit - you are basically talking about selling/persuasion. You are trying to sell the idea to your internal clients that your project is complex. If you want to sell your idea of your project being complex you should know how persuasion works and what our brains respond to the most. Some of the key things are ...

Framework has come to mean something like angular.js or .NET, so it would perhaps be misleading to use that word. (Only because of current trends in programming culture, though; it's perfectly reasonable usage otherwise.) You could refer to your initial set of files as a scaffolding, or as mock-ups if they only exist to show an initial visual design.

What Ixrec said. I would like to add that I would call it a site map, because that's what a sitemap basically is. The site map may have a public part, which you might want to include in an actual "site map page" presented to the visitors, and a private part, which might contain things like administration pages etc. the existence of which you probably ...

The way you measure the ROI depends on the effect of the projects on the overall product. For totally behind-the-scenes work (library improvement or replacement, implementation language, etc.), you would probably look at server load, system performance, defect rate, future/estimated engineering time savings, etc. For a user-facing feature, you would look at ...

Could you clarify what you mean by integrate with the IDE? Do you want to see it in your IDE? If so, you could build it as help files--look for a help file compiler that fits your IDE, most will have something available. Word used to be pretty bad for large documents and I'm guessing from your post it hasn't changed much. Way back in the day we used ...
