Jira allows to integrate multiple tools, plugins and add-ons which further enhance its functionality and create unique workflow for the organization.While Jira is extremely popular (and for good reasons – it is a very versatile and powerful tool), a lot of people find it counterintuitive, confusing and complicated. The reality is that it is sometimes not straightforward at the beginning, so it is easy to do things wrong, which would lead to heavy workflows, unproductive processes, cluttered backlogs and frustrated teams.Why choose this course?Your instructor is an enterprise Agile coach who also has been supporting one of the largest Jira instances in the world for 4 years as a superadmin and has over 8 years of working with Jira.
