Hi - My Group is rolling out Jira Portfolio and trying to standardize on terms.
The current plan is to set up 10 Portfolios build across Business functions. Under each Portfolio we have between 10 - 60 different software applications. These teams current use Jira for User Stories and Epics. We want to bundle Epics into MVIs and map the MVIs to Milestones. The goal is to better prioritize work and ensure we are working on things that map to long-term goals.
We are not in agreement on how to define what an MVI is. Some say an MVI can only relate to a single application and ties to a release. Others say that an MVI can relate to a strategic objective that crosses multiple applications and can have many releases at the Epic or Story level before the MVI completes.
I thought I would poll the "Wisdom of the Crowd."
