Jira Work Management for Business Teams

By: John Funk

Overview of this book

Jira Work Management (JWM) is the newest project management tool from Atlassian, replacing Atlassian's previous product, Jira Core Cloud. While Jira Software focuses on development groups, JWM is specifically targeted toward business teams in your organization, such as human resources, accounting, legal, and marketing, enabling these functional groups to manage and enhance their work, as well as stay connected with their company's developers and other technical groups. This book helps you to explore Jira project templates and work creation and guides you in modifying a board, workflow, and associated schemes. Jira Work Management for Business Teams takes a hands-on approach to JWM implementation and associated processes that will help you get up and running with Jira and make you productive in no time. As you explore the toolset, you'll find out how to create reports, forms, and dashboards. The book also shows you how to manage screens, field layouts, and administer your JWM projects effectively. Finally, you'll get to grips with the basics of creating automation rules and the most popular use cases. By the end of this Jira book, you'll be able to build and manage your own Jira Work Management projects and make basic project-related adjustments to achieve optimal productivity.

Congratulations! You have now created your first Jira Work Management project. Hopefully, you have also discovered a few new issues/cards to go along with it.

In this chapter, we learned how easy it is to follow the template process to create a Jira Work Management project. We answered the question of what's next after project creation with our equally simple trip down the project settings path to the world of JWM project administration.

Armed with this new ability, you can now feel confident about accessing simple administration components that will give you more insight into your project and the work you are performing.

In the next chapter, we will jump into the details of how to modify the board and underlying workflow, how to create new boards, and how to interact with various schemes to give us real power over our Jira Work Management projects.
