Cross-team agility and collaboration at Lumen with Jira

Maintaining a competitive edge in any industry today requires agility and alignment across the entire organization. Join this webinar to learn how Lumen’s software development and business teams move fast while staying connected with Jira.

Scaling agile practices to keep pace with customer needs and stay ahead of the competition involves teams of teams working on a unified front. However, the process often uncovers silos keeping teams in the dark and disparate tools impeding coordination.

At Lumen, agile collaboration spans 100s of teams. How did they do it? As Lumen scaled, its teams relied on Jira to stay aligned on big picture goals and plan cross-functional deliverables, all in accordance with their own ways of working. Software development teams track issues from one sprint to the next in software projects, while their cross-functional partners track tasks in business projects. Everyone’s work is brought into a shared plan in Jira, where timelines and deliverables are mapped to important dates, dependencies, and capacity.

Join Rob Mulvaney, Sr. Manager - Agile Transformation Office at Lumen, and Atlassian’s Jira experts in this webinar to learn:

  • Common challenges to scaling agile across teams of teams
