Jira and Agile for small company of developers, working on different projects.

I work for a web development company, less than 10 staff. Each member of the team is usually working on different project, there have only been a handful of occasions where more than one person has contributed to the same project.

We have recently adopted Jira, however we only seem to be using it as a basic to-do list. We are also setting up git repositories for the code of each project.

Can anyone suggest some resources on how to go about setting up Jira to effectively manage many small projects? Or some guidance on how an agile process can be used in such an organisation?

Sorry this is such a broad question... I really don't know where to start.

Hi Michael,

As you indicate this is indeed a broad question and not so easily answered without knowing your situation and how your company currently works.

As an Atlassian Expert and an ALM consultant I regularly get this kind of questions and my advice would be to search for an Atlassian Expert that can help you out in real life. It's much easier to advise you and your team on how to work effectively and effciently in a face to face environment.

You can find the Experts here :


Good luck.

Best regards,
