Recently our company has taken the plunge into using Atlassian for our project management tool. Right now we're using Jira and Confluence. As an architect at our company, one of the things I've begun to maintain is something we call a "Preliminary Project Assessment." This includes very high level project components, risks, assessments, notes, things we will be ignoring for this project and estimates. Specifically, the components are technically formed chunks of work. For example, a component would be "create new mobile application."
Once the scrum teams kick off, they're working off the user stories and breaking them off into tasks. What I'd love to have is a nice way to map the user story back to the larger components they effect. Hopefully this will not only help me with traceability, but will also help the team easily get back to my initial thoughts on the piece.
Today we've got all of our users stories and sprints captured in Jira but this document in box. Before I go through and start adding super terse comments into each story, does anyone else have a thought on how I can use the Atlassian suite of products to help achieve what I'm looking for? Above and beyond that, does anyone have experience adding traceability from initial project planning down to the tasks the team executes on?
