What other IT Managers are saying

Don’t just take our word for it, see what others in the same boat as you are saying!

What a godsend, the ‘IT Manager’s Playbook’ was pivotal in the way I restructured my workflow.
Concise instructions, and easy to follow video instructions. I will be suggesting to higher management that this is incorporated into the whole company for all project managers.

Sandra Lapworth, Project Manager at Fonterra

I am generally sceptical of new software, however when I was approached to try out ‘IT Manager’s Playbook’ I was surprised how intuitive it was and easy to train new software managers. We will be using this as a platform in the future for all our departments. We particularly liked the “reporting’ as it was a clean and easy to understand system.

Module 3

Become familiar with more advanced JIRA functionality to help you in day-to-day planning and monitoring.  View Sprint Boards for Kanban tracking and many reports for drilling into your project’s performance.  Project and Issue filtering is also illustrated for efficient analysis.  Finally, we begin diving into the administrative configuration of JIRA starting with Issue Types.

The Problem with IT Project Tracking

Why you are growing weary of constantly missed deadlines and unchecked priorities.

  • Unclear Project Goals
  • Mid-Project Changes
  • No User Feedback Loop
  • Limited Requirements
  • Poor Communication

Part of the Requirements phase should be clearly defining what the goals of the project are, who is impacted and how the changes will improve business operations. Many times, Requirements are statically gathered from the stakeholders without further insight into the real problem. It is imperative that the goals are defined up front and all stakeholders are “bought in” to the project charter at kickoff.

With Confluence, the stakeholders can gain full visibility into initial definitions of the project. After the project is started, it doesn’t end there, they can continue to monitor how the project is shaping up with Requirements, user interactions and mockups constantly updated to reflect current state.
