In partnership with PMI, Ariel provides Jira Intermediate Training. This training is targeted for team members and those in an oversight role for technology delivery and sustainment programs. The hands-on training teaches students how to use Jira to manage and track their work in an immersive environment that simulates a large, diverse organization. The course covers how to use Jira to handle the kinds of challenges that typically arise in organizations: getting started, forecasting completion dates, updating and streamlining our workflows, and scaling up to larger efforts. We will go over some interesting use cases, such as how to set up a linked “discovery” Jira board to turbocharge your backlog refinement process and how to coordinate multiple teams working off a single backlog. Thoughtfully configured and enhanced with a carefully curated set of plugins, the training highlights lessons learned and best practices, demonstrating how smooth and effortless Jira can be.
