Product Management - Best way to use JIRA and Confluence?

I am a Product Manager that will work with a Product Owner. The Product Owner uses JIRA for Agile development with the development team. I would like to create a "snapshot" space that will filter the development projects that are most relevant to the commercial business units and add them to something like the "Roadmap Planner" macro.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a workflow that could work with this set up?

Thank you for you input!

Hi Justin, we have a series of blogs about using Confluence in a software team.  I think you'll find a few of these really useful.

It's over 2yr later and this is still highly relevant :)

And we are still trying to figure out the best solution. My organization has been testing a mix of Asana and JIRA by way of the Unito plugin and it's looking very promising.

This way we can use Asana to:

  • create our pre-backlog list of feature requests and bugs (changing the status of an item will automatically create a JIRA ticket)
  • use the roadmap tool in Asana. It is so much easier to use and has much better features. The roadmap tool allows you to turn each list item into a bar that can be resized across time - when the bar is resized, the length of time and dependancies also change. Another huge benefit is that multiple product roadmaps can be rolled up into one so that our head of product can get a wholistic view.

That's interesting Justin! Good luck with the testing.

Nice additional points. Do you have a team dedicated to best-practise...? Or maybe some form of Project Management Officer or Evangelist?

Hi Andy, Yep, we have a team of experts who handle our documentation.

Just an update here... we are using Asana for roadmaps and haven't implemented Unito.
