About This Class

This course walks through all the core features and concepts of JIRA Software on Cloud with real-world examples and has been catered for all users, managers and admins.

JIRA is a very comprehensive tool and one of the most popular agile project management tools out there. When used and configured correctly, it will help you work smarter, faster and more efficiently.

 

WHY TAKE THE COURSE:

  1. Learn the most important characteristics of Scrum and Kanban agile methodologies
  2. Covers all aspects of JIRA including working within an agile team, leading an agile team, and administering the main things that make up JIRA
  3. Real-world examples including
    1. How to manage your daily task-list via a daily scrum-based process
    2. Configure permissions and projects for internal team members, as well as external members (Eg: consultants, customers etc)
    3. JIRA allows you to create stories and epics for agile projects - learn how to create another issue type used in agile called Spike and create custom screens, fields and workflows for this new issue type.
    4. Modify the default software development workflow to include steps for QA
    5. How to set up an icebox (features that aren't ready to go into the development backlog aka "put on ice") in JIRA
    6. How to build a completely new workflow to manage the approval of new work or feature requests, before being moved into the development backlog
    7. How to manage multiple teams working on the same projects via multiple agile boards catered to each team

 

STRUCTURE OF THE COURSE:

  1. Agile Concepts - Goes into detail with Scrum and Kanban methodologies. By the end of the section, you’ll have a full refresher on these methodologies as I made sure I hit the most important notes when it comes to how they work.
  2. Working within an agile team - Get your first look at navigating the Jira user interface and learn how to create issues, work on issues through the agile boards, search for issues, create custom dashboards to see whats happening in Jira and other functions beneficial to any agile team member.
  3. Leading an agile team - Configuring and managing agile boards, creating and maintaining the backlog as well as starting and ending sprints and creating releases. All these steps stay true to the agile steps described in the prior section.
  4. Jira Administration - Goes over all the main administration sections and each part has an example that you can use to follow along with. By the end of this section, you will understand all the customizable aspects of Jira and be able to cater your own instance to fit your own specific needs.
  5. Real-world examples, scenarios and bonus content - This is where I show you how I use Jira to track and forecast my personal day-to-day tasklist, while using a daily scrum-based process, among other examples.
