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.

Learning a new tool can be very daunting, especially software surrounding what often feels like the mystique of project management. But Atlassian has cleared much of the mystery of getting started with a revamp of its initial Jira Core offering for the cloud.

This step-by-step, hands-on book will help you create your first project in practically no time and with little effort. You can even get started with Jira and manage your project with up to 10 users for free. But don't let that fool you, the Jira Work Management (JWM) product is full of surprising power yet simple features that even novices can use immediately.

By the end of this book, you will be up and running with your first Jira Work Management project already created and probably some initial tasks as well. You'll understand how to do the simple things needed to administer your project and keep it functioning properly.

All of this and more in an easy browser-based tool provided by Atlassian, one of the world's leaders in project management software. Take a peek inside and let's get started!
