BigPicture training Q&A
Is this more Jira or BigPicture training?
The training is intended to focus on the BigPicture. Which is a Jira app (or addon, plug-in). But as our trainer is both a Jira administrator and a coder and an experienced project manager, he will surely answer any Jira-related questions.
How early should I schedule my training?
We recommend that you contact firstname.lastname@example.org at least 2 weeks before an on-line training. Or 4 weeks before an on-site one.
How should I prepare for the BigPicture training?
You may as well be a greenhorn and the majority of our trainees are. But may we suggest that you click through BigPicture before the training. Seems like an hour or so would do. The app is available free of charge for 30-day trial.
How long will the training last?
6 hours per day. Single- or two-day variants are available.
Does a shorter BigPicture training option exist?
Yes, there are two shorter options:
- A one-hour training (demo) with our support team member. E-mail email@example.com to schedule one. This is a Webex-based demo. So you will hear our team member and you will share screens,
- or: you may use BigPicture tutorials on our YouTube channel as well as BigPicture user guide on Atlassian Confluence.
Are reviews of the BigPicture training available?
Another excerpt from an after-training e-mail of a client:
On-line vs on-site training
While they last about the same, 1 or 2 days:
- The Webex online training tends to be cheaper and there is no need for get-togethers. To give you an example, we had this sort of training session delivered to people connecting from San Mateo, CA, San Diego, CA and Missouri at the same time.
- The on-site variant is when our trainer travels to a client. This is generally 50-70% more expensive, but we consider this option more efficient too.
Who attended your training before?
People from SONY, Wirecard, Qualcomm, Allianz to call the big names. And countless medium and small organizations too.
