Overview of this book

Agile methodologies like Scrum focus on customer values in an incremental way. Regular planning, tracking, reporting, and improving can become equally challenging from a project management perspective. GreenHopper is a tooling support for JIRA that offers easy adoption of agile practices through rich interfaces for effective team collaboration and project management. Agile Project Management with GreenHopper 6 Blueprints is a step-by-step guide that teaches you how to manage agile projects using the GreenHopper tooling system. With easy adoption using pre-sets for Scrum & Kanban, the rich interface focuses on the work at hand, increasing team productivity. Executing sprints, tracking sprints, and reporting on agile projects has never been so easy. The integration with different development environments helps teams to focus on collaboration, communication, and continuous improvement. This book covers agile project management concepts using GreenHopper. You will learn about backlog management for your agile team, how to create projects and boards for your agile team, and how to create new backlog items, prioritize items, estimate backlog items, create sprints, and update technical task status and report on the same. You will learn everything you need to know about managing an agile project using GreenHopper and how to achieve the best value for your team.

Agile project example

In this book, we will be following an example of a small business requirement which needs to be achieved through an Agile team. We will be using different screenshot examples further in this book through an example project, and will explain GreenHopper functionality along with different Agile aspects.

Project scenario

Let's say we need to develop an online photo album. We want to deliver a web version of the photo album and also a mobile version of the application, and have a site operations team to operate on that.

GreenHopper projects

Let's say we have three different teams working:

  • An Agile team for website delivers a web version of the photo album which has its own backlog and exposing API to be used by the mobile team.

  • An Agile team for mobile delivers a mobile version of the photo album with limited functionality and has its own backlog items.

  • A site operations team supports online application and maintains regular infrastructure tickets in Kanban way.
