In many cases, customers come to us seeking to consolidate their existing Jira instances into one unified system. This is where creating a common language across the organization becomes crucial. Consolidation projects provide a unique opportunity to merge organizational work processes and knowledge, ultimately resulting in a sum that is greater than its parts. At PractiProject, we understand the importance of creating a common language in these situations and have helped numerous clients achieve this goal.
Having a unified language across the organization provides many benefits, including increased data transparency with objective data rather than subjective interpretations. This, in turn, enables organization-wide BI capabilities, allowing management to directly access portfolio-based information from Jira, rather than relying on project managers or other roles to interpret the data. By focusing on objective data, the organization can be optimized, leading to better decision-making and improved project success rates.
In addition to BI capabilities, a unified language allows for monitoring and optimization of organizational-based resources. This means that resources can be utilized and optimized across the organization, rather than on a project-by-project basis. By creating an organization-wide KPI that drives continuous improvement, the whole organization can be focused on optimizing its processes, rather than just individual projects.
At PractiProject, we have vast experience in creating a common language across organizations using Jira. We understand that it’s not necessary to reinvent the wheel for each customer, and instead, we leverage existing working models to optimize the process. As our CEO Hilli Balzer, who has over 30 years of experience managing and consulting tech companies, notes: “Creating a common language across the organization is essential for ensuring that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same goals. At PractiProject, we have the experience and knowledge necessary to make this process as smooth as possible.”
Our Jira configuration services are designed to help organizations achieve a unified language across the platform. We work with customers to streamline their Jira hierarchy, reduce custom fields, and outline the base fields that are most commonly used in organizational KPI or BI reports. We also reduce the number of schemes for new projects, providing customers with a few default options to choose from, making the process more efficient.
Additionally, we document the different automations used in the system and see how everyone can benefit from them and their logic. By maintaining and improving Jira settings, we ensure that our customers can continue to utilize the platform to its full potential.
In conclusion, creating a common language across the organization is essential for maximizing the benefits of Jira, especially in consolidation projects. At PractiProject, we understand the importance of this process and have the experience and knowledge necessary to make it as smooth as possible. By leveraging our Jira configuration services, customers can streamline their Jira hierarchy, reduce custom fields, and outline the base fields that are most commonly used in organizational KPI or BI reports. With our help, organizations can achieve a unified language across Jira, leading to better decision-making, improved project success rates, and optimization of resources across the organization.
