Configuring Jira for maximum agility: A DoD case study

Join this session to hear how Jira’s built-in capabilities and a curated set of plugins were leveraged to support the complex and diverse needs of a Directorate within the Department of Defense, including:
- how we helped large multi-team programs effectively manage dependencies, enabling them to plan ahead, minimize surprises, and coordinate predictable delivery of valuable software features and capabilities.
- workflow configurations that support governance controls and auditing of approval decisions where required, while enabling flexibility and innovation.
- how to use forecasting to answer the question: once development starts, how do we know if we are on track? See how this can be done using a forecasting plugin together with prudent Agile scaling techniques.

  • Understand some of the unique challenges associated with developing enterprise software for the US Department of Defense.
  • Learn how to take full advantage of Jira’s flexibility, in order to provide an environment that balances alignment with autonomy—enforcing compliance while enabling teams to innovate within the guardrails.
  • Leverage some excellent third-party plugins from the Atlassian Marketplace to extend Jira’s capabilities to support the needs of large and complex organizations such as the DoD.
