The ability to continually generate fresh ideas, evaluate their feasibility, and align them with stakeholder expectations is critical for any development team.

This is how Jira Product Discovery Projects come into play, serving as a pivotal tool for harnessing creativity, streamlining idea management, and ultimately driving the evolution of any product.

POC: Jira Product Discovery Project

When the Beta version was first introduced, we eagerly embraced the opportunity to explore its potential impact on our product development process. So I'm ready to share some examples of use.

What types of ideas are we capturing in Product Discovery Board?

Ideas from the Roadmap:
Jira Product Discovery Projects act as a repository for ideas originating from your product roadmap. These ideas are often preliminary and need validation with stakeholders before being fully developed.

Ideas from the Help Center:
Customer feedback is invaluable. Ideas that arise from your help center can be captured and evaluated, ensuring that you address customer needs effectively.
