Agile Training Overview

This Agile Project Management with Jira and Confluence training teaches attendees how to use Jira and Confluence together in ways that enable Agile teams to manage projects seamlessly across the two applications.  Students learn how to use Confluence to define product requirements, create Jira epics, stories, and issues, and link them directly to the product requirements without ever leaving Confluence.
