The Blueprint is ideal for customers who want to start scaled-agile development on the basis of Jira Software.

  • Support: in addition to the Jira configuration, you will receive help getting started with the product and support with the first steps (e.g. support backlog grooming, PI planning support, etc.).
  • Best practices: the blueprint is set up in such a way that it consistently follows important best practices.
  • Target-oriented: You can select the right packages for your specific needs.
