  • We have several business units within our company. Should a project center around a business unit to keep the information in a silo? I am trying to understand the future impact of having unrelated apps creating a project for each individual initiative.

How do you structure this with your JIRA? It complete makes sense to have 1 Project = 1 Product but we need more info on your JIRA Structure.

It is very fluid at the moment, as we do not have someone driving the implementation.  The global instance of JIRA is ~4 months old.  At one point we had a JIRA expert -> they left -> now I see a wide array of interpretations around the company (20K employees).  I went down the route of creating a project per initiative for my business unit.  Another business unit created a single project to house all their initiatives, even though they are not related.  I am trying to figure out the best practice to determine potential long term impact.

If you create a project for each initiative, my guess is that you get a clear view around the data.  If you do not go this direction, you have a single project that accumulates massive amounts of artifacts over time and could result in convolution of data sets. 

 

Single project with a single objective (Law of Demeter).

Perhaps JIRA portfolio would solve the problem that I am having.
