Based on our experiences from numerous Atlassian implementation projects in many different industries and for customers of all sizes, we have developed our agile approach for implementation projects of the Atlassian product suite. As this approach includes several implementation phases and different iterations it can easily be adjusted to meet the requirements from very small companies up to large-scale deployments.
Check out our project iterations and let us know what approach you want to take to rapidly set up a prototype and start collaborating effectively:
Don't rush through this phase. Iterate on your understanding of the problem space, and potential solutions, until you're confident you're on the right track.
The planning process should be relatively short. While we recommend an iterative approach to planning, there are a few high-order tasks before moving into project execution mode.
Work in 1- to 2-week iterations, with a demo for stakeholders and a team retrospective at the end of each cycle.
You've completed all the work. You're all done now, right? Not quite. Closing out a project involves more than cancelling the recurring meetings (although that part is fun...).
Most "accidental project managers" are keen to get back to their regularly scheduled day job once the MVP is delivered.
