Hello Atlassian Community!
I’m reaching out to tap into the collective wisdom of this knowledgeable group. I work for a company that’s in the early stages of integrating Jira across multiple departments. We’re excited about the potential for streamlining our processes, but we’ve hit a bit of a snag when it comes to standardization — particularly with workflows.
Here’s our challenge: Our projects span a diverse range of disciplines including software and hardware development, testing, requirements engineering, and project management. Given this variety, finding a one-size-fits-all workflow seems impractical. Yet, management is keen to avoid a scenario where we have a multitude of custom workflows and fields for every project, which could lead to a maintenance nightmare and dilute the benefits of standardization. Self-managed projects are also not an option.
We’re currently deliberating how to balance the need for specialized workflows for different teams with the desire to maintain a manageable and standardized system within Jira. Has anyone else encountered this tension between customization and standardization? If so, I’d love to hear about your experiences, strategies, or solutions that worked (or didn’t work).
To summarize, here are the key points we’re considering:
Any insights on workflow strategies, tips on striking the right balance, or anecdotes about your journey in a similar situation would be greatly appreciated!
Looking forward to your thoughts and thank you in advance for your help!
