Seeking your guidance on the best way to track high level projects in a company, ideally using Jira.
The goal is to create a project management office (PMO) tool to manage initiatives across the company - something we can use in management meetings to track tasks, or drill down to lower level details. Is this idealistic heirarchy a possibility in Jira or a pipe dream?
We currently use Jira for agile software development.
I have a dream... of a company-wide PMO using Jira where high level projects drill down into smaller projects and finally into tasks.
We'd prefer to adopt Jira rather than add more tools (Monday, MS Project) since we already use Jira for Agile software development and want to expand its use. We also have ERP software so timesheets logged there need to correlate at some point with Jira's project tasks. But i haven't used Jira, so I don't know how flexible or appropriate it is for what i'm trying to achieve. So i'm seeking your help!
What's the most efficient way to learn Jira for Project Management? Cheapest and fastest, for senior level tracking. (I.e., I don't need accreditation or certification, and probably don't need to learn scrum or detailed software development in order to implement and start using this as high level PM tool.)
Do Jira tasks allow for many hierarchies - can we report at various levels? E.g., does each Epic have a parent, and therefore an unlimited hierarchy?
Does Jira offer useful dashboards and reports that are useful for management meetings?
Thank you (!!) for your expertise and time to read my long post. I have a gut feeling for what I'm trying to achieve but not sure if i'm going about it in the right way. I thank you SO MUCH for any recommendations, guidance, suggestions.
It's certainly very possible to do this!
Below is some general advice, but how to set it up for you does depend on your specific company needs - reports, visualisation, portfolio management, processes, etc.
I'd check out...
There's also guides, articles, blogs, etc on how to setup for what you want - but it's going to take some planning and designing for you to get it right for your organisation.
