How Can I Use Jira to Maintain Velocity and Improve Agile Planning?

Jira is the undisputed champion of managing software issues. In the Agile development world it allows teams to gain unrivalled insight into their outstanding issues, and supports multiple agile development methodologies. But, as good as Jira is, it still leaves users asking some questions, such as:

  • Can I create customized boards in Jira?
  • Is there an easy way to plan Scrum Sprints or Kanban To-do lists?
  • How can I visualize my issues in Jira?
  • What can I do to speed up Sprint Planning?
  • How do I balance all of my team's priorities?

Whether they use Scrum or Kanban, users want be able to fuel their Agile collaboration with tools that will power them to work quickly and efficiently. Jira offers much of this capability, but with the addition of one or two apps it can become truly an Agile development powerhouse.
