@Henry f Ninying -

Welcome to the community.  Here is a link to Atlassian's University Free Training offerings as related to SCRUM -

Hope this helps.

In addition to the great suggestions above, if you're looking for Jira specific training, there are great resources here, groups you can join, etc. as well as training videos for Jira on YouTube and LinkedIn.  I'd recommend watching those that have Atlassian Certified instructors :).  Good luck on your journey!!

Have a good read of the Agile Manifesto.

How does that fit where you are working?

Can you create a scrum team - can you go through the manifesto with them?

Have you got an idea on the length of your sprint (I use 2 weeks)

I would also advise to go Scrum first rather than Kanban

Get agreement that you are going to be the scrum master for them.


Create a project in Jira with a scrum board

populate the backlog (writing tickets is a thread on its own but stay with me)

get the developers together to decide from the backlog what they are going to work on for the sprint (put these into the sprint area on your jira's backlog)

Once they have stated the stories they are working on and they are in the appropriate sprint section of the backlog - make the sprint active in Jira. You should now see the Active Jira board with all their items in the 'ToDo column' 

have your daily stand up asking each developer to update the team on what they have accomplished , what they are currently doing , and if they are experiencing blockers. Ensure the status of the jira tickets reflects where the story is (ToDo, Doing, Done)

Hopefully you have also agreed what 'Done' represents as far as the story goes (We use "ready to be shipped to LIVE")

At the end of the sprint - review how the process worked.


As a scrum master - manage the sprint process, facilitate the ceremonies, and support the business in its use of Jira. You may have to hold training sessions on how you enter the information in Jira that compliments the Agile process. For example I run one on entering acceptance criteria into a ticket using the 'gherkin' format

There is a lot of helpful online material on your journey Scrum Master journey.

Finally ask to go on a course that results in accreditation

hope this helped
