We are trying to to create a management board (Kanban view) that gives a realistic bird's eye view of what is going on in our company.
Our JIRA instance is used by all our company departments (Marketing, Sales, Development, Management and so on) most of the departments have their on JIRA projects with their own tasks (different issue types).
When we bundle different tasks from different projects (departments marketing, sales, development....) that relate to on same initiative we use epics that we then display on a management board. This epics kind of serve the case of this bird's eye view. We can click on them and see what issues are linked to them. But this has some limitations and this is why I want to ask for suggestions.
Link's to documentation and or webinars that tackle this topic will be very welcome.
We had the need for excact the same board in a company I was working and we did the following:
That has done the trick for us but if you want something more special you will have to think of something else.
Hi Bernhard, I think I am going to use your solution as it serves the case and the best this is that it is simple. Nevertheless, I would love to hear from Atlassian if they have something for this case, as I believe that many users face this challenge when organizing their ongoing projects. Maybe they have something in progress, something like a board of boards or something like it. Meanwhile I will use your solution. Many thanks for your help! Best regards
We use the Structure plugin for high-level view. It's a more compact view than a Kanban (more issues on screen), and also looks great exported to Excel. Since issues can be nested inside any type of issue, any issue type can serve as a container and sum up the estimates and logged work.
It takes some getting used to, but Structure is a very powerful tool, especially for complex deliveries.
