comment How can I convince management to deal with technical debt?
@laiv, unfortunately based on almost 9 years of working in various IT companies from small development houses to large investment banks, I've never seen a successful QA process applied. I'm not arguing that none exist, but even in the places where I have seen a QA team/process, they tend to get pushed to the side when emergency releases, bug fixes for impatient customers etc emerge.

comment What to do with estimation of incomplete story?
@RobinGreen I agree with your take on epics and I'm not a fan of them. One of the key things (something a lot of people I've worked with overlook) is the value of retrospectives. We recently started using JIRA's Agile board and I frequently show the team the burn down chart of the teams performance. Incomplete stories are discussed if and when they happen and immediately put back into the backlog. In the retrospective, we look at why the story was incomplete. Lack of resources? Lack of knowledge? or perhaps a loose combination of the two.
