I'm new to waterfall project management. I'm really struggling to track project progress.
There are a couple of questions I need to ask:
There are a couple of other questions as well but If you can answer me ones above will be great.
Although Jira has somewhat limited options when it comes to reporting and showing the complete timeline of your project, with the help of the plugins available on the Marketplace - you can easily achieve your goal. I strongly recommend checking out BigPicture - Project Management & PPM.
With its Gantt module you can:
- easily organize your Jira project tasks into a customized WBS
- show the whole project on the timeline
- as well as present the task progress
Other modules included in the app - such as Resources/Board/Reports - can also come in handy while managing your projects!
Have a good day and best regards,
Great input here already but I wanted to share something a bit different and how I have previously done some waterfall projects. Hopefully these ideas will be useful to you.
Hi, @Naveed Ahmed. Welcome to the community. I second @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_'s simple answer. And while @Adam [SoftwarePlant] did a good job touting his company's product, BigPicture is one of many Atlassian Marketplace apps that add additional project management capabilities to Jira.
Some things you should consider when trying to decide whether Jira can do what you need as is and/or adding apps.
In other words, the answers to your questions depend greatly on your needs.
My suggestion is that you elaborate your requirements so you have better criteria you can use to chart your course. And, that you learn how to search the Atlassian Marketplace effectively. For example, this search:
shows you the top-rate Jira apps for advanced project management on the cloud platform.
Full disclosure, my company's product is one of them — Structure — but as you can see there are many more.
First, you have to decide whether or not you even need an add-on app. :)
Hope this helps,
