Project Planning 

 What is project planning? 

Project planning is a discipline addressing how to complete a project in a certain timeframe, usually with defined stages and designated resources. One view of project planning divides the activity into these steps:
  • setting measurable objectives
  • identifying deliverables
  • scheduling
  • planning tasks
Without a project plan, team members don’t have a high-level view of how and when everything will get done.
Jira offers the ability to sketch out a project plan for a time-based project, or a roadmap for ongoing, iterative projects using Atlassian’s Jira software.

Take control of how you get from idea to done
