Stay SAFe® with Jira Webinar: Register Now!
If your team utilizes–or plans to implement–the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) to efficiently operate at scale, you won’t want to miss our live webinar on February 13th at 10:00 AM (MST).
In this webinar, we’ll delve into our popular case study that details how we helped a large, geo-distributed client launch a SAFe framework with Jira Software, Atlassian’s powerful Agile development tool. We’ll cover the solutions we created within Jira that allowed our client to accurately represent core SAFe concepts, such as:
Program Increments (PIs) – Used to timebox delivery at a large scale, PIs are very similar to Agile iterations that are at the heart of Jira planning.
Agile Release Trains (ARTs) – Large cross-functional teams that benefit greatly from Jira’s excellent management of Agile teams.
Weighted Shortest Job First (WSJF) – The mechanism that weighs Cost of Delay against job size, guiding backlog selection. Incorporating these into Jira project backlogs helps teams achieve the most bang for their buck in SAFe.
We hope you’ll join us on February 13thfor this one-of-a-kind webinar. The first 20 people to register will win a $10 Starbucks gift card, so register today!

What You Should Be Reading…
OK, we know we might be a bit biased, but we think Atlassian’s blog is pretty amazing. They not only cover technical subjects related to their products, there are also tons of blogs with helpful, real-world advice and suggestions. Case in point…a recent blog called “How to Rescue Your 2019 by Working Smarter.” The author takes a look at seven popular New Year’s Resolutions and how you can keep each of them– for the entire year–with the proper tools and techniques.
