Jira Reports: Measuring Progress in Agile Teams

Hi Community!!

Recent years of work have brought us to the stage where we need to have a measurement of how our team is progressing with work.

Be it your team is following the scrum method of development or kanban, Jira provides us a way to measure the team's progress.

Before we move into reports, Jira needs data in order to show reports or correct configuration for the board.

It's important we plan our backlog and a sprint or continuous work with the kanban template with a correct set of data before we start working on a set of featues.

Its also important team plans the development of the features in set of releases which can be mapped to releases feature in Jira.

For example: Let's say we built a backlog for a product in Jira and we are following Sprints in order to release the features, now the data importance I was talking about was when we move the set of issues to Sprint backlog we have to make it has estimation effort, which version it is planned to be released in, only then your reports can show how can estimated effort has paved your way in developing a product.

Make sure whenever you create a new project and start building software your backlog makes sense with all the data in it either before you start the sprint or working on issues with the correct configuration on board.

For more information on how to build a backlog, sprint backlog, and configuration of board checkout the university course here

Let me know your thoughts on the article and how you plan to build a backlog and sprint's issues in order to have the correct reports in Jira
