"It depends".  That's an answer I hate and love at the same time. In this case, it fits very well. The approach to developing your skills depends on: The skill you wish to build, the level of expertise you want to achieve, your current level of experience as a Project Manager, the dynamics of your projects/organization, the amount of time you have, the budget you have. For this article, I'm focusing on the differentiation by the level of expertise: Junior Project Manager, (Regular) Project Manager, and Senior Project Manager.

Time flies, and I don’t even know when 10 months in Netguru have passed. From the professional point of view, it was the most challenging and exciting time in my career.

The company was around 80 people and 5 PMs. After 4 years of being here, not only has the company reached 600 employees (with close to 50 PMs on board!), but also I feel that I grew at least at the same pace as the organization! Along the way, I became a leader and had the privilege of helping other managers to grow into their full potential. Some of them are also leaders right now.

Jira is a really popular tool for tracking bugs, issues, and project management activities in general so you would think that the wide range of option it offers are just common knowledge at this point, and the adoption of productive integrations and apps has been exploited to the point where it is really hard to do something more effective anymore. The reality is a bit different, though, and there are a few reasons why most companies do not take advantage of the full potential of Jira, the main ones being:

Imagine the nightmare of every project team: all tickets in the sprint are done, but the feature itself is not working. Unfortunately, as I’ve experienced too many times before, such a scenario is not that far from the reality of project management. It all boils down to finding the right form of task description. In most cases, we balance between poorly described tasks, which results in extra clarification meetings or calls during a sprint, and exhaustive, detailed lists of requirements which tend to kill developers’ creativity.
