“Skills for Jira” comes with a basic Skill Tree out of the box, to get you started quickly without spending time on filling in common skills like programming languages or software tools.



Luckily, use cases of “Skills for Jira” are not limited to tracking generic skills. Rather, this is just a tip of the iceberg.

Mapping product/organization-specific knowledge

Teams that are operating complex, highly specialized (e.g. Telco), and/or old products have very specific challenges in terms of knowledge management. It is not uncommon for a team to uncover a knowledge gap when a person who created or maintained the complex component has left the team. From that point, the component may continue to remain functional, but effectively becomes immutable and will forever remain a burden, impairing growth and evolution as well as acquisition possibilities.

“Skills for Jira” helps you not only maintain the map of these critical bits of knowledge scattered across your team, but also spot the scarcity problem early, before it is too late to act.


The common approaches for solving the scarce knowledge problem include creating documentation and transferring knowledge within the team.

Let’s explore the tools you get for maintaining your knowledge map:
