JIRA Intermediate

Key highlights

  • Hands-on, every student gets their own unique jira instance
  • Highly realistic sample projects
  • Learn the 6 most widely used jira plugins
  • Configured & taught by certified Scrum & Kanban trainers
  • See what Jira looks like when *properly configured* and maintained

Jira intermediate training is curated for team members and those in an oversight role for technology delivery and sustainment programs.

The hands-on training teaches students how to:

  • Use Jira to manage and track their work in an immersive environment that simulates a large, diverse organization.
  • How to use Jira to handle the kinds of challenges that typically arise in organizations: getting started, forecasting completion dates, updating and streamlining our workflows, and scaling up to larger efforts.
  • We will go over some interesting use cases, such as how to set up a linked “discovery” Jira board to turbocharge your backlog refinement process and how to coordinate multiple teams working off a single backlog.

Thoughtfully configured and enhanced with a carefully curated set of plugins, the training highlights lessons learned and best practices, demonstrating how smooth and effortless Jira can be.

Learning Objectives

  • Populating a Jira backlog at the speed of conversation: how to get started on a brand-new project or new major release
  • Basic project templates: Kanban, Scrumban, Scrum, Scaled: creating projects that share configurations that balance alignment and flexibility
  • Updating our Kanban or Scrum board: how to streamline our workflow, measure delays and queues, ensure we have an audit trail for important human decisions, etc.
  • Supercharging standups: making dependencies visible, zeroing in on what's important
  • Constructing dashboards and “information radiators” in Jira to promote visibility
  • Use Filters to provide easy access to important views based on customizable criteria
  • When 2 levels aren't enough: extending the Jira hierarchy with Features and Capabilities
  • Learn how to forecast milestone dates with confidence based on sound statistical methods
  • Setting up a second “discovery” board to improve backlog refinement
  • Supporting Agile at scale: how many teams can work in harmony within a single Jira backlog, each with their own board

The following services will be provided

  • A PDF copy of the slides
  • An invite to an optional 20-minute pre-training “tools” (Zoom, Kahoot, Google Slides) overview to make sure attendees get the most out of the training
  • An individual login to their own private fully configured Jira environment with multiple projects and 4 months’ worth of highly realistic data, starting 2 hours prior to training and ending approx. 2 hours after the end of the second day
  • Access to a shared environment starting at the end of the second day and continuing for one week, to allow additional practice where they can continue to practice their skills. The shared environment contains exactly the same configurations, projects, and sample data that they have in the training environment.
  • A certificate of completion; 6 PDUs (5 technical, 1 strategic); 6 SDUs
  • Details for logging into the class will be sent to all registrants after registration closes
