The Agile Manifesto focuses on “individuals and interactions over processes and tools”. However many organizations, mainly large distributed organizations, find tools as the best way to reflect synchronization, status and progress between teams and different personas that work together on the same project or share organizational goals.
Jira Agile/Portfolio is one of the most popular tools that organizations of different sizes use to reflect their Agile working environment. Jira is highly configurable and can be adjusted to support a variety of different agile environments.
In this course we will learn how to use Jira wisely with minimum effort for configuration to fit your organizational Agile culture.
If you find jira configuration painful and awkward, if teams feel that using Jira is an overhead, if managers cannot get the information they need, this course is for you!
