New to Jira Work Management

Hello everyone, Shy here. I'm the Operations and Process manager at my computer. We're a super small team, so a lot of the day-to-day rests on me. There's actually a phrase we say that Manual = Shy because in most things it is me doing something, especially if we haven't found a way to automate it yet.

I am now getting into project management. It's exciting, but also a bit terrifying as I don't really have any experience with it. I'm a bit overwhelmed with the complexity of Jira and I would love some general direction about where to start.

Hello Shy! We are glad you are here!! Using Jira Work Management is a great way to start with Jira. It's less complicated although you will sacrifice some of the more fully functional and flexible capabilities of Jira Software projects. 

If you will excuse my shameless plug, I wrote a book on Jira Work Management that was published earlier this year. You can find it on Amazon, or if you purchase directly from the publisher here:
