How to Manage Complex Programs with Jira Align

Culture, communication and collaboration have a great impact on productivity and outcomes. In this session, we will focus on complex government program management and the critical business processes and tools successful agencies are employing to achieve their mission goals.

After a year of remote work we have learned that establishing efficient, user-friendly remote workflows can be challenging, especially when your workforce is already running hard to meet service demands. In government, it comes down to understanding how culture, communication and collaboration impact productivity and outcomes.

In this session, we will focus on complex government program management and the critical business processes and tools successful agencies are employing to achieve their mission goals. We’ll address some of the most common challenges, including:  

  • tracking
  • delivery management
  • reporting 

And we’ll share how Jira Align enables you to: plan, monitor, evolve, and modify program-level delivery risks in near real-time with all key stakeholders without ever being in the same room.
