Why JIRA Agile?
Scrum? Check. Kanban? Check. JIRA Agile brings all the power of JIRA to agile. JIRA Agile's rich feature set enables you to flexibly plan and adopt the best agile practices for your organization.
JIRA Agile integrates with JIRA, Confluence, and our Dev Tools like Stash for a seamless developer experience.
Add estimates and bugs to user stories while in a planning meeting, or capture estimates on each story as you play planning poker. Tracking your estimates on each story helps your team become more accurate.
Use story points, ideal hours, t-shirt sizes, or your own estimation technique – JIRA Agile supports them all.
Order the user stories and bugs in the product backlog by dragging and dropping issues. Put the stories that deliver the most customer value at the top of the backlog.
If you have a large backlog, instantly filter with JIRA Agile's flexible search to find a particular user story or bug.
Team members can update the status of stories by drag and drop, or edit story details directly in the integrated detail view.
JIRA Agile brings a new level of transparency as everyone shares the same view, whether they're in the office or working remotely.
Agile is all about scale. Extend JIRA's issue types, fields, and workflows to adapt as your team evolves. And as JIRA scales, so does JIRA Agile. Manage issues from multiple projects in a single board, groom huge backlogs with multi-select ranking.
Teams who use scrum plan work in sprints, short blocks of time in which the team can estimate, and return value back to the customer.
Software development teams, as well as teams in other industries, use scrum to deliver complex solutions in a structured, predictable way.
The product owner manages the backlog, ensuring the team is working on the highest-priority items first. With JIRA Agile, the team can organize stories in sprints, in larger epics, and across release versions.
The team will take a subset from the top of the backlog and bring it into the sprint with the sprint marker. With JIRA Agile, the team has visibility into the work ahead of them so everyone is aligned.
All stories above the sprint marker get discussed in the sprint planning session. The issues above the marker become the ones the team is committing to for that sprint.
Agile development and delivery
JIRA Agile's flexible agile boards help every team stay on top of the work in progress. Swimlanes let the team see progress on individual stories, while quick filters highlight specific areas that need attention.
JIRA Agile is deeply customizeable. Team members can create personal quick filters that make it easy to report in for standup.
Retrospectives are sprint reviews which help the agile team evolve. JIRA Agile's extensive reports give the team critical insight into their agile process and results.
The team can follow their progress towards the sprint commitment using the burndown chart; If the scope of the sprint has changed, JIRA Agile highlights the additional work.
Want to track larger items? The epic and version reports go across sprints to show delivery of feature level work.
Kanban is a catalyst for change through small, incremental improvements to your existing process – be it scrum or otherwise.
Rooted in lean manufacturing, kanban is a signaling system that can be effectively applied to software development, DevOps, IT operations, and many other processes.
Map columns on the board to the steps of your existing workflow. Add or remove columns as the process evolves over time.
Kanban teams will often map a longer value stream on their board and add columns for wait states, like Waiting on customer.
Separate issues on your board using swimlanes; map out your value stream by class of service, like Expedite.
Swimlanes may be configured using the JIRA Query Language (JQL), giving the team complete control over the issue selection criteria.
Kanban teams use a pull system to optimize flow from right to left across the board. Set minimum and maximum column constraints to identify spare capacity and bottlenecks. Optimizing flow leads to greater productivity.
Use JIRA Agile's reports to understand cycle time on issues to help maximize flow for the team.
Monitor current trends and analyze past progress with the cumulative flow diagram. See where work is building up and bottlenecks occur.
