JIRAPortfolio Bootcamp, presented by Michelle Melancon, Scrum Master/Agile Coach
Let’s create some Portfolio Live Plans and have a Q&A on what exactly Portfolio Live Plans is and how to get started. Let’s dig into how you can use Live Plans in different roles to track progress and forecast what you want to deliver and when. We can work through questions and scenarios and hopefully I can provide some insight for you. I will also talk about some of the pain points that I have worked through in getting Portfolio rolled out.
Topics will cover the following:
Following the event, there will be structured networking activities to meet new folks accompanied with beer, wine, refreshments, great music and entertaining Virtual Reality!

Manager Atlassian Suite Team/Agile Coach CSM
I started at Avid as an SCM Administrator. I am currently the manager of Infrastructure Projects. After initially migrating 600+ engineers from various issue tracking tools to a single cloud based solution (JIRA Cloud), we are now responsible for ongoing maintenance and project related tasks to improve the current infrastructure and also improve the user community experience.
We recently added JIRA Portfolio and Atlassian Service Desk to the Atlassian Suite. What started as an engineering tool had been adopted by the entire company. It is the first unified solution that Avid has ever used and we continue to find new ways to keep it simple and sustainable while providing new services.
The initial JIRA project gave me some insight on the agile maturity of the engineering teams. To foster a better understanding and adoption of Agile I created and delivered a basic hands on Scrum workshop and from there organized Scrum team coaching. This grew to include the Corporate Technology and PMO organizations worldwide. Once all teams had the opportunity to understand the benefits of self- organization we were able to move towards a complete Agile transformation using SAFe and other lean methods.
In addition to Agile coaching I provide Atlassian application and AccuRev training to 600+ engineers with the goal being that we have 600+ happy engineers.
