Why did Jira training Dubai offer come into being?

We’ve recently traveled to Dubai to train the team of Wirecard Processing FZ LLC. They are a competency center for the global payment processing company, as well as home to Wirecard’s regional headquarters for Africa and the Middle East. They are located in the young neighborhood of Dubai Internet City, nearby Dubai Marina.

Wirecard Dubai training

It was 42-43 degrees (5ºC above average) on the 5th and 6th of June as we were delivering the training sessions to the Wirecard team in Dubai. Luckily they cranked their AC up, so we could focus on their instance of Jira + BigPicture and not on the heat.

What have they taught us and what we’ll provide next time we visit Dubai?

  • Trainees in Dubai expected to have their own real-life issues addressed during the training sessions and not some abstract cases. So, when next time in Dubai we’ll finish your training session a bit earlier to spare some time for consulting.
  • They liked keyboard shortcuts in Dubai, so we’ll touch that next time we travel to UAE. Fortunately both Jira and BigPicture feature numerous shortcuts, although BP lacks the CTRL+Z. We’ve got this under development ;)
  • Wirecard team of Dubai made us aware of another possible use of baselines, a feature of Gantt chart module, we’ll cover that during your Jira training session.
  • The Dubai users expected Jira + BigPicture instance having been made available to them after the training to further hone their skills, so we’ll try to fix that one next time we are in UAE.

We focus on Agile

We believe in Agile management, but we’d like to point out that:

  • While UAE is undergoing transformation from classic to Agile project management methodologies…
  • … Jira supports both those “old” methodologies, as well as Scrum and Kanban.
  • We follow Scrum in our home organization and our CEO obtained the SAFe® certification.
  • Our project management apps for Jira, such as BigPicture and BigGantt, support both traditional and modern approaches.
