Welcome to the community @Maximilian Hartmann 

Jira Work Management is more geared towards the business teams. More information on JWM can be found here:

More suitable solution for you is the Jira Product Discovery. It is really geared towards the PMs, and I am using it myself. It covers everything from brainstorming to the feature development. More info here:

Hi @Maximilian Hartmann 

Jira Work Management is designed to enhance project management, task tracking, and team collaboration, making it a versatile tool for roles such as product managers and product owners who are responsible for overseeing product development, managing backlogs, and ensuring product delivery aligns with customer needs and company goals.

Here are some ways you can use Jira Work Management in your role:

1. Backlog Management:

As a product manager or owner, managing the product backlog is one of your key responsibilities. Jira Work Management allows you to create user stories, tasks, bugs, and prioritize them according to the product roadmap and sprints.

2. Roadmapping:

You can use Jira Work Management to create and share product roadmaps. This helps in planning future product features and releases, and communicating these plans with your development team and stakeholders. The built-in roadmapping is good, but if you'd like to get more in terms team workload, you can always experiment with addons like Tempo Planner or Planyway.  

3. Workflow Customization:

Customize workflows according to your product development process. You can define stages like To Do, In Progress, In Review, and Done to reflect your team’s workflow, making it easier to track progress and manage tasks.

4. Collaboration with Development Teams:

Jira Work Management integrates seamlessly with Jira Software, which is widely used by development teams for software project management. This integration allows product managers and owners to collaborate closely with their development teams, providing visibility into the development process and facilitating smoother communication.

5. Reporting and Analytics:

Generate reports and use analytics to track the progress of your projects, the performance of your teams, and the status of product development. This can help in making informed decisions and adjustments to the product strategy.
