Empower Your Enterprise Agile Teams

Anyone who has ever studied the Scaled Agile Framework’s (SAFe) ‘Big Picture’ realizes that there are many moving parts that must work together for organizations to realize significant business benefit. Without tool support for these myriad moving parts, continued success and growth for your lean-agile environment is that much more difficult. Atlassian’s Jira Align provides the support necessary for implementing agile at scale practices and processes- from portfolio strategy to work ‘on the ground.’

In this session we’ll focus specifically on how Jira Align supports two critical activities integral to a successful implementation of SAFe (or any agile at scale methodology):

  1. Preparing for Big Room/PI Planning
  2. Executing successful (in person or remote!) Big Room/PI Planning

See it in ActionLearn about the benefits, key features, and use cases for Jira Align.
