What is the name of this development methodology?

Today a letter came from the new techdir. He doesn’t like the way we use Fat, so he suggests the following:
On working with Fat:
Honestly, it seems to me that this is
1. Excessive bureaucracy
2. Excessive hemorrhoids
3. Does not facilitate live communication
4. Unjustified tightening of nuts
Now we use JIRA just for setting goals and bugs. Did - translated into check.

But I do not exclude that I might not know something. Maybe someone applies this in their practice, and is it all justified? Or maybe this one has a name and this is part of even some technique? I only realized that such techniques as Scrum, XP definitely do not need this.
