Agile project management is the most widespread tool for managing software development projects and products worldwide – from small applications to enterprise platforms. Many teams have great theoretical experience of how Agile, Kanban and SCRUM should work, but it is often the specific implementation that limps along in an effort to use a suitable tool to support the process management. During this talk, you will learn from experienced Agile trainers how to properly connect the theoretical line with the practical aspects, in this case using the Agile tool JIRA. In fact, proper support of agile processes and tools is very important, especially in today’s “new normal” era where many groups work in distributed teams and “sticky notes” are no longer a suitable tool. In particular, you will learn how to properly organize the Product Backlog, plan iterations and sprints using, for example, a Scrum board. We will also share tips on how to use quick filters and swimlanes for better visibility. The next demo will be dedicated to the Kanban methodology, where we will look at how to configure the Kanban board, view the requirements backlog, and how to better get an overview of tasks using quick filters.
