What is Jira?
Jira is a popular project management software which is used across different industries and supports any kind of work, from Agile product development to waterfall project planning, from helpdesk operations to portfolio management. Jira allows to integrate multiple tools, plugins and add-ons which further enhance its functionality and create unique workflow for the organization.
While Jira is extremely popular (and for good reasons – it is a very versatile and powerful tool), a lot of people find it counterintuitive, confusing and complicated. The reality is that it is sometimes not straightforward at the beginning, so it is easy to do things wrong, which would lead to heavy workflows, unproductive processes, cluttered backlogs and frustrated teams.
