With more organizations looking to minimize server maintenance, the Atlassian Cloud has become a viable option for organizations becoming increasingly reliant on the Atlassian Tool Suite.

Supercharge Jira BPM with Smart Issue Templates, Jim Hannon, Agile Transformation Architect
In the current environment, it is essential to gain any efficiencies in your operations. Smart Issues Template for Jira from AppsDelivered fills a needed hole in the Jira marketplace. Smart Issue Templates can be used to save considerable time in repetitive tasks and can allow your organization to run process templates in one click that requires multiple steps using three Jira Issue Type levels structures like Epic -> Issue Type (Story, Task, Bug, etc), and Subtask. During my talk, I will show how I use Smart Issue Templates for Jira to manage my user group processes that include many related tasks.

John’s ability to advocate for the customer as well as maintain the integrity of the organization is unmatched. When I reported to him, he had just taken over the Operations portion of a project on which we were both working. He immediately crafted a plan to complete the application along with processes for testing and documentation. John handled the details of each screen, trained the developers and engineers on how the system worked and edited the documentation to convey system specifics. He was ever available to discuss the project and was always open to new ideas and putting them into practice. Working with John has taught me so much about business and how a good management style can inspire a team.

How we started
We were early adopters of Slack and we have been using Jira to manage projects for as long as we can remember. When we first came to Slack we were surprised to learn that integration to Jira was not available and decided to build an integration we could use ourselves.
After we built the product we thought other teams might want to us it and decided to release a public beta. We even built a fancy logo (see it here) and teams signed up for the beta from day 1. Paul Wozniak on product hunt then discovered us and was nice enough to submit our integration.
In March of 2017 we came out of beta and as they say, the rest is history. Today we have teams all sizes from all over the world using our products and most importantly telling us and the world that they love using them. Check out our reviews to see what people are saying.
Leading strategic agile implementations to new heights. Providing strategic direction on technology and process areas.
The current area of focus:
The two predominate scaling methods are the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) and Scrum @Scale.
The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) has established itself as the leading approach for large organizations to adopt agile practices across their enterprise. SAFe adoptions are complex and lengthy as they involve many areas and procedures of an organization.
Scrum@Scale is a framework within which networks of Scrum Teams operating consistently with the Scrum Guide can address complex problems, while creatively delivering products of the highest possible value. These “products” may be hardware, software, complex integrated systems, processes, services, etc., depending upon the domain of the Scrum Teams.
