It is not uncommon that you have a prioritized backlog where customer value and planned releases have set the or- der of priority. And still, you end up in unwanted situations due to dependencies between issues in the backlog.
Jira Software is part of a family of products designed to help teams of all types manage work. Originally, Jira was designed as a bug and issue tracker. But today, Jira has evolved into a powerful work management tool for all kinds of use cases, from requirements and test case man- agement to agile software development. There are of course a large variety of tools that manage product roadmaps, backlogs and visualize dependencies that might suit your way of working.
This guide is a part of a series of guides where we will present different scenarios to bring help and ideas to development teams in different situations where dependencies might be the cause.
It’s all based upon own and customer experiences where it has been difficult to handle efficient development but also critical to deliver in line with the expected customer values and time plan.
