Isn't it a bad practice to add stories once the sprint begins? If it's an uber-critical story, we just cancel the sprint and begin a new one( with the new story added into the backlog.) Especially for 2 week sprints. Am i wrong?

Personally using this .. it's awful. Everything is segregated and you have to go down multiple menus to find what you need. Massively time consuming to create and use. It's not remotely succinct. I will stick with MS Project.
Dan Chuparkoff (2 months ago)
Agreed. Succinct is not Jira's forte! And if you're used to the gantt view of a project in MSP, I understand why Jira doesn't work for you. I just made a new video. I'd love to here what you think. http://bit.ly/IntroToJira

That is not agile software development. For starters, story points are not a way to cheat management into not looking at performance. It is a way of tracking performance in relation to product value: as you are able to burn more story points per iteration, you deliver more value per worked hour (in waterfall lingo). This kind of misrepresentation happened A LOT.

Mayuresh Kadu (8 months ago)
I use JIRA _a lot_ at work. Even if JIRA is really really easy and intuitive to work, it relies on having a basic grasp of a few concepts e.g. Agile in context of the work you're involved with. This helped connect me with a lot of those. Even after all this time, this video still feels relevant. Many thanks!

So, it is a lack in Jira to set dependencies ORDER in the Sprint of Scrum. Why not tag them by numbers then Jira could indicate which dependency goes first and which goes second, and so on... This feature would be helpful if enhanced.
Dan Chuparkoff (10 months ago)
Possibly a great idea. But I don't work at Atlassian anymore and thus, no one is [officially] watching this thread for feature requests. For this and other great ideas, did you know that all of you can add things to the Jira backlog just by requesting them here: https://jira.atlassian.com/projects/JSWCLOUD/issues/JSWCLOUD-16557?filter=allopenissues

How long should be taken to estimate story points for a week-long sprint, generally it takes me around 5-10% of story points just to estimate the story points for a 5 day week work. Is it too much and does it improve with time?
Dan Chuparkoff (10 months ago)
Well, first, it does improve over time, but... My teams and I will typically estimate story points using planning poker for all tickets in a sprint (about 30) during the (1 hour) Sprint Planning meeting. I propose that you might be spending more time than necessary trying to estimate. Story Pointing, is intended to be a rough estimate of complexity and your team should be able to do that quickly. If you can't, then maybe your tickets are too big and thus the estimation process includes figuring out the work breakdown in addition to pointing. Does that make sense?

Dan Chuparkoff (10 months ago)
Thank you very much. This is a little old at this point and there are several things that I would love to reexplain. But it seems to get people to a base understanding.
Adrien Carré (10 months ago)
Hello, I would just like to point out that your understing of story point is wrong : the goal is not to make it obscure for boss, but has two other goals : - to have a simple way to tell boss/clients that this tasks is more complex than this one, wich your system will do as well - to have absolute estimation of complexity between tasks, regardless on who's doing it, wich your system is doing VERY wrong The speed judgment will always exists in a project, but it should happend on the speed of the team with the velocity, not on the story point. Boss/Client should think : "According to this team's velocity and the sum of story points in the backlog, do i think this team promess me delivery in my planning or should i give the job to an other team who will have better velocity ?" When you use story points between tasks themselfs, and not by comparing to time estimation, they are always true, whoever is doing the task : a slow personne or a fast personne. If the boss decide to give the job to an other team, or to change a team member, the story points will then still be correct since they are not person-dependent. This is why STORY POINT ARE NOT TIME (yes, i'm yelling at the slide ;) )
Adrien Carré (10 months ago)
My answer is at the end of this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrCJv0fTyR8 There is a market place ! :)
Adrien Carré (10 months ago)
Dan Chuparkoff, It is true that it's a bit confusing at first but for me the key factor is that a task is not estimated alone, it's estimated in comparaison of an other one. So there is no discussion on 2 or 2048 : if a task is more complex than a 2048, it's 4096, if it's the same complexity it's 2048 and if it's easier it's 1024. Even the first task is no brainer : it's 2 because it's the only one, so by definition the simplest. The next one will either be a 4 (more complex), a 2 equal as the first one or a 2 but because it's simpler than the first, wich is now a 4. But this method needs to have a tool, otherwise you keep changing the tasks story points and it takes too long. I've watched your video because our clients needs better visibility than we can offer them with Trello and therefore I'm thinking of Jira : that's a big win for you who wanted to make it more popular. :) As I'm guessing it's not possible to apply story points by card comparaisons as I explained in Jira (is it?), is it possible to extend Jira functionalities? Via API maybe? Or other kind of integration like Trello?
Dan Chuparkoff (10 months ago)
Thanks, for your comment. You're definitely correct. And as long as you have at least one experienced estimator on in the room, or on the team or whatever, you can jump right to your more-correct explaining of points and velocity and how they work. However. In a room full of people, where not a single one of them has any experience estimating, one person will say this task is 2 points and another might say the same task is 2048 points. In spite of your ALL-CAPS-INFUSED PASSION FOR THE RIGHT WAY,... on a brand new team, with no experience working together, or planning tasks, or estimating tasks, people need a way of calibrating as a team to what small is and what big is. You're right. I could just let them flounder along, and eventually after a bunch of wildly oscillating sprints, velocity would stabilize, and it'll work itself out. However, after doing a bunch of these new-team experiments over the years, this is the way that I believe gets to alignment and understanding most quickly. If you have a better video that explains to brand new estimator, especially a non-technical one, how to look at a task they just wrote and know how many points it should be, by all means, please upload it to youtube and share the link here.
Velislav Ivanov (10 months ago)
Hey Dan, really good presentation, bravo! Just a comment about Story Points. You compare them to hours, which might be good for your own tasks if this suits you. But the idea of Story Points is not to compare them to hours, but to complexity of the task. Hours are two specific and bring frustration to the team (imagine a developer who gave 8SP and it's an equivalent of 4hour but he's already on 3.5h and the task is half way maybe. It's a psychological factor. That is why the whole idea of scrum is to have a cross-functional team and you track it's velocity. The more the team works together, the more efficient they become and at some point you'll be able to say "my teams average velocity is 40SP for a sprint, so we estimate this peace of work can be done in 6 sprints.".
Cognex Documentation (10 months ago)
Nice intro to Jira's approach toward scrum. I'm curious on any kind of best practice to allow projects to share an epic's stories? For example, if I have an epic to build Widget A. Scrum team A has some stories to do for that epic, scrum team B has some other stories, and so on. How best can you capture this in the backlog that shows the epic in relation to which teams/projects are working on what?

Michael Pasek (11 months ago)
If I have many (<=10) projects, that run only for 2 weeks each; at the same time -- I'm thinking about one JIRA project with each mini-project as an Epic. All running at the same time. Different teams for each Epic. So in this model, 1 project = 1 epic = 1 sprint. Make sense? Will my dashboard being readable (i.e. different stakeholders coming to dashboard only care about their Epic). Going to give it a try. If I'm heading off of a cliff however let me know.
Dan Chuparkoff (11 months ago)
Not a bad idea at all. I also often use Components for this purpose. It's a good way to keep the projects easily segregated from each other using the Component in a Board Filter so that each board only shows the relevant work. Using Components, you still get to have the notion of epics if you need them. But your way could definitely work. (Thanks for the tweet. I forgot to come back to this!)

Hi, could you advise me as to how one can create a set of issues and then establish a hierarchy among them. Furthermore, one should be able present it in clear manner such that the task hierarchy becomes clear to anyone seeing it (e.g. Gantt charts). I have poked around Jira but have not come across a way to present it graphically.
Dan Chuparkoff (1 year ago)
I'm not 100% sure since I'm outside of Atlassian now, but I believe that Gantt charts are deliberately absent from JIRA in order to focus team on prioritization, velocity, the sprint burndown, and the management of epics, so you won't find those things native to JIRA. There are however several plugins for JIRA that add Gantt visibility to the experience: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/de.polscheit.jira.plugins.gantt/server/overview You also might like JIRA Portfolio because it adds helpful cross project visualizations to the experience: https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/portfolio

Great introduction and very useful questions and comments by the audience. Building Epics before tasks makes a lot of sense to me. Also distributing tasks from various epics in a sprint equally sounds reasonable.

John Couto (1 year ago)
a good and articulated intro to JIRA but disagree with some of the scrum (agile) references. a sprint is not meant to be changed once in motion. this is a critical aspect of scrum. if a new task or product is found than it should be added to next sprint's backlog and prioritised accordingly. i understand the purpose of this video is to showcase JIRA but those looking to learn Agile (specifically Scrum) will perhaps be mislead.
Karoline Logman (9 months ago)
The sprint should not be changed because the team has made a commitment. If the sprint can change it means that the product owner can keep adding scope and then the team commitment is worth nothing. However sometimes people come to a better understanding and a decision has to be made that it's better to spent time on a different task than the previous agreed backlog and it's not called Agile for nothing: I believe that in that case it should be possible to exchange tasks, if the estimate is the same as the original commitment, or other tasks are removed from the sprint so the original commitment can still be done. All in discussion and agreement with the team. In general this should be avoided, because preferably the team should be able to concentrate on the task they agreed to deliver.

Thanks for watching. I think actually it's time to remake this video in it's entirety. Lots in there I'd like to change now that it's been about 5 years. Thanks for your feedback!

Are the Sprints located inside each EPIC?
Dan Chuparkoff (1 year ago)
Ideally, an Epic should 'fit' in a single sprint so that your team can complete all of the work contained in an Epic and demo it at the end of the Sprint. If your Epic is too big to finish in 2 weeks (or your sprint length), then it's good practice to break it up first into demoable pieces. So it might be more true to say that the Epic is located inside of the Sprint. A team is usually working on one Sprint at a time and there are often multiple Epics being worked on in a single sprint. Make sense?

Thanks so much for this presentation. Even if it's already over two years old, I've learned a lot from it and understood some things, which hadn't been clear before. I'm just starting with Jira and Agile for my company, so I stumbled upon your video just in the right time. Greetings from Poland. :)

As an experienced and professionally trained PM, I can't help but think that Jira is so biased towards bottom up apps dev type projects that it's pretty much useless for any other type of project. I've tried really hard to get my head around it but it just doesn't do it for me. Even the terminology is at odds to the language that the PM profession uses. Add to that the market place for plug ins seems full of add ons that don't truly understand PM.

@OP This 100%. It wastes so much time imo, I want data in front of me that's useful. (Ive used it)

I would suggest Waterfall and Prince2 project management is hard to hammer into Jira ... but reading up on Agile / Scrum / Kanban / Less really is a new development in software engineering. At my last place we ad a multi-site multi-national team using Jira to co-ordinate a lot of work, together with Bitbucket and I learned a lot (that differs from Prince2). A lot of good hygiene factors of understanding Risks and Issues are good from traditional PM, together with the ideas of dependencies and resources required to do a task. But agile does add something new. Jira is trying to support Agile and its probably the best tool out there for that.

Hey Agilers! At this link (https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira/agile-project-management ) is a great post from my old friends at Atlassian that really breaks Agile down. If you liked my video maybe even if you hated it, you should check out this post from the real experts!!

Is Story Point applicable to Jira Project Types like Business projects e.g. Project Management, Task Management etc. As far of my knowledge, point system is only applicable to Agile Scrum project. Awesome video! Thanks.
Karen Aschim (2 years ago)
I have two questions: 1) my top nav says Boards instead of Agile - why?, 2) My burndown chart changes once I mark a sprint complete - why? Thank you!
Dan Chuparkoff (1 year ago)
Because you have an old version of JIRA. Your team must have an on premise version of JIRA and your team hasn't upgraded since JIRA 5-something. One of the many benefits to running JIRA Cloud (where Atlassian hosts it for you) is that Atlassian also upgrades it for you. You're missing out on tens of thousands of development hours worth of new features and updates. I really recommend cloud-hosted JIRA if your team doesn't have the bandwidth to keep the On Premise version up to date.

12:00 really like that bit on Story Points <--> Hours. I'd add that Story Points are moreso useful for indicating the relative size/complexity of the task *regardless* of who is doing it. E.g. a Senior Dev might knock it over in 1 hour; a noob or somebody who is cross-skilling might take much longer; and let's not even factor if peeps are Pairing or Partnering yet, lol. So yeah, in my experience, for the task where time is quick and agreeable to land on, go ahead and convert to equivalent Point/s.

Thanks. I get a lot os shit about that segment here, but I really think it's helpful for a brand new user to try to point their stuff with hours in the early stages of learning estimation. It's also helpful for setting a new team's baseline for the difference between 5 and 21. It's important to get passed the hours thing soon, but it's useful for priming the pump at the beginning with people new to estimation.

Can you tell me what agile is in a compressed 1 or 2 sentences?
Dan Chuparkoff (2 years ago)
"Agile software development is a set of principles for software development in which requirements and solutions evolve iteratively through collaboration between cross-functional teams." (Wikipedia). In contrast to the preceding defacto style (Waterfall development), in which requirements were passed down through approval gates. There are lots of benefits, but the two that I find most beneficial are that Agile helps to improve the iterativeness and speed to more quickly get usable software in the hands of reviewers/users and that it helps to ensure that the technical side of the team (Developers) has an opportunity to participate in the requirements-creation conversations.
