Configure individual JIRA-workflows for process flow controls

You will get the most out of JIRA if you allow for an unbureaucratic workflow and if and when necessary, require strict process rules, depending on the needs of your project. These requirements may also differ within the project itself, so certain parts may remain more flexible, while others might be more rigid. A simple example: an additional request of a customer in your project needs to be estimated, given the go-ahead, controlled for quality, and accepted by the customer. A mistake on your end needs to be removed as quickly as possible: complicated processes would only slow down this effort. We configure JIRA together with you so that it fits your enterprise’s needs, we will also show you how you can further customize it yourself.

Central task management

Many companies seem to content themselves with average project management, low levels of transparency, and less than optimal efficiency in their daily business. To an extent, excellent strategies and goals are being implemented by highly educated, extremely motivated employees according to their best knowledge and conscience. But how? Take a look around at how daily business is conducted at your enterprise. Is it ruled by Excel, Word, and Powerpoint together with Outlook emails? There are so many different versions of all these files that are constantly being distributed by mail in their various iterations and permutations.

Some managers are regularly surprised by how good their results are despite a lack of structure, discipline, and efficiency within their operational implementation.
