Jira Align from Atlassian enables scaled agility across team boundaries. For large companies, it is the tool to combine their business strategy with the technical implementation. The basics for the successful use of Jira Align are taught in the official Atlassian training “Jira Align Program Essentials”, which catworkx offers as one of the few Atlassian partners in the German speaking countries.
catworkx expands its training program with the official trainings for the Marketplace App “BigPicture”. The courses of the manufacturer SoftwarePlant are offered as two or three day trainings (Basic or Advanced). “BigPicture for Jira” offers extensive functions for project or product management as well as many additional functions that Jira does not provide by default. The trainings are available in the remote and the presence variant.
In January 2020 Scaled Agile releases the new version of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe®), which supports companies worldwide in implementing agile methods. The new version 5.0 contains extensive changes, which are also incorporated into the associated training courses. catworkx offers an updated version of the training to become a certified SAFe® Scrum Master.
Three catworkx employees were happy to receive a special certification at the end of November: Christoph Ritter, Christian Ritter and Richard Federa. They are now among the world’s first twelve certified trainers for BigPicture, the leading app for project portfolio management from Atlassian Solution Partner SoftwarePlant.
