For agile teams Jira Software provides powerful agile project management capability, allowing teams to collaborate and create complete visibility and transparency on easily configured Jira Agile boards across one or multiple projects. Jira Software allows teams to translate their physical manual boards into powerful electronic boards that make tracking and reporting automatic, simple and easy from anywhere in the world. The Jira Software for Agile Teams training course is aimed at both individuals who have never used Jira or heard of agile before, as well as those who have been using Jira and have been exposed to agile, but would like to understand how to translate this on Jira. In this course, we take you through the very basics of agile, focusing on Scrum & Kanban, and then show you how to use Jira Software to support your agile adoption by practically applying the theory on the tool.
This is a beginner level course and no pre-requisites from an Atlassian tool perspective are applicable.
User must be comfortable using a PC and have basic computer skills under the belt.
The user needs to use a JIRA compatible browser. Each user needs to check this prior to the training session as our trainers cannot provide technical support on this during training.
