Introduction to JIRA Scrum Training Course – Overview
As a result, delegates leave the course more confident in five key areas:
- Scrum in a nutshell: Roles, events and artefacts.
- Get started with JIRA and set up a project
- Managing requirements from epics to user stories
- Sprint planning sessions in JIRA
- Tracking progress towards sprint goals and major releases.

JIRA Scrum Training Course – Content
Case Study Project: Setting it Up in JIRA
The class is presented with an idea for a product and an initial set of requirements is made available in text format. Therefore, delegates are shown how to create a new Scrum JIRA project with the Scrum template and populate the initial product backlog by creating user stories.
Introduction to Scrum Roles
The three roles in Scrum are introduced and each team assigns a Scrum Master and Product Owner:
- Product Owner: maximising the value of the product
- Development Team: delivering a high-quality product
- Scrum Master: maximising the organisation’s ability to deliver
Scrum Artefacts in JIRA
We introduce the three core Scrum artefacts as the expression of requirements at different points in time:
- Product backlog: requirements to deliver.
- Sprint Backlog: the current, active working plan.
- Increment: the current state of the product, representing the progress made so far.
Furthermore, delegates explore the wide range of techniques available to manage this information and take part in practical exercises to explore, such as:
- User stories.
- Estimating software development with story points.
- Value and return on investment.
- Attaching diagrams, documents and images to JIRA tickets.
- Managing dependencies between JIRA work items.
Scrum Events in JIRA
Delegates explore the intent behind the Scrum events and put these into practice:
- Sprint Planning: The team and product owner use JIRA to break down user stories into sub-tasks and estimate their capacity for the sprint
- Daily Scrum: The team assesses their progress towards the sprint goal by reviewing the JIRA Scrum board and Sprint burndown charts
- Sprint Review: The team assesses the longer-term release forecasts by learning how to configure JIRA to show a rolling backlog projection and release burnup chart.
- Sprint Retrospective: The team learns the principle of continuous improvement and how JIRA helps to track team improvements.
As a result. delegates leave the JIRA Scrum training course after working through an example of software development in Scrum. They use JIRA Scrum to undertake the full range of tasks and processes that real development teams do while managing their work.
