Factom: Portfolio for Jira case study

Edited
Josh Frank Atlassian Team Apr 04, 2018

Recently, as part of a series of Portfolio for Jira case studies, we spoke with Carl DiClementi, Director of Product Management at Factom about how he uses Portfolio for Jira. In lieu of spreadsheets, Carl takes a unique approach with Portfolio for Jira to building and communicating plans. To plan for the quarter he creates a level of hierarchy above Epics, which he calls "Programs" and works with his engineering team to break down the "Programs" into smaller pieces of work. From there he uses Portfolio for Jira's scope table to massage the details and prioritization of the Epics and Stories for each Program. In order to communicate his plans with business stakeholders, he embeds Portfolio for Jira's schedule report into a Confluence page, which stays current even as plans change.

Hi Josh.  Interesting read and good to know that other businesses are utilizing JIRA Portfolio.  I wanted to ask if there's ever a plan for JIRA Portfolio to support additional hierarchy between Epic and Stories?  

We have users who've come from using MS Team Foundation Server, which provides a hierarchy level of Epic > Feature > Story > Tasks/Subtasks.

While Portfolio offers hierarchy to build on top of Epics, there doesn't seem to be a way to build below.  Thoughts?

Hi Ricky,

Thanks for your inquiry. Adding/customizing an issue hierarchy between epic to story is not in our short term roadmap. 

I created a feature suggestion ticket to capture the terminology gaps of scaled agile frameworks(and any customized solution) with the Atlassian product line.

We are prioritizing our roadmap constantly, please provide us further feedback on the ticket.

Cheers,

Hi @Josh Frank we are currently working on a project for Tokyo's Olympics during 2020 and we'd love to talk to you about how we are using JIRA Portfolio.
