[Webinar] Planning planning planning! – June 10, 2021

May 17, 2021

It’s been a while since we covered planning but it was one of our most successful webinars. So we’re gonna give you an update.

There have been a lot of developments in the category. The most notable being Jira Work Management. We will be doing a comprehensive review of JWM and it’s role vs. 3rd party planning apps. We have some interesting conclusions which suggest a powerful combination of both JWM and heavy-weight planning apps is the best strategy. We will also cover the latest developments in Jira Align.
