First of all, let's overview the main challenges in managing complex projects:

Challenges of Managing Complex Projects

  • Multiple Stakeholders: Complex projects often involve multiple stakeholders with different priorities, making prioritizing tasks and allocating resources difficult. 
  • Uncertainty: Complex projects can be unpredictable, making estimating timelines and resource needs difficult. That's why tracking the team's Jira time spent and daily/weekly/monthly input is very important.
  • Coordination: Managing multiple teams can be challenging, mainly if they are in different time zones or have different communication styles. So it brings more challenges to track their Jira time spent properly.

But itโ€™s not all bad! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

We propose a single solution for each point described above.

How does the Jira Time Spent report help overcome these challenges?

The Jira time in status report in Time in Status for Jira Cloud add-on can help overcome almost any challenges associated with managing complex projects in such ways:

Estimation: Jira time reports help managers to estimate future resource needs more accurately and adjust timelines. We advise regularly using Jira weekly status reports to track the team's progress and have some conclusions at the end of the month. The monthly status report brings more value regarding the tasks completed during the month. So you can identify which ones are successful and which are not. Then, according to this information, plan Jira issues for the coming month.
