JIRA for Agile Teams

Scrum, Kanban, Scrumban? We've got you covered in JIRA for Agile Teams.

This course is targeted at new Scrum and Kanban teams that are looking to get started quickly with Atlassian JIRA and GreenHopper. We will explore both methodologies and help your team become a high performing agile team.

We start with introductory usage of JIRA and move on to advanced topics. Supporting documents are available for greater detail, allowing you to follow along at your own pace. 

This course will take 2 hours to complete and then you'll be ready to get your team kicked off with their first planning session in JIRA!

Packed with Insights and Best Practices

Our product team recently switched to JIRA and JIRA Agile (formerly GreenHopper) from Redmine and I was tasked with setting up the general infrastructure of the tools across 5 Scrum and Kanban development teams. This course was invaluable in showing me the important aspects of JIRA and JIRA Agile to customize, and which best practices to use within our company.

Nicholas Muldoon knows his material VERY well and each lecture is packed full of information about Agile theories, tool configuration, and do's and don'ts. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is using JIRA and JIRA Agile, whether you are setting it up for the first time, improving an existing setup, or just curious about best practices from someone intimately familiar with Agile and Atlassian tools. Great work!
