Overview

Lifecycle Communities allow organizations to create a secure, centralized place where everyone involved in the Agile product development process can collect and share knowledge. Communities help organizations build better software by allowing team members to learn from the collective knowledge of the organization and from the people within. Communities are open environments that are integrated into Lifecycle and allow team members to publish best practices, agreements, and other supporting documents. So you don't have to start from scratch, Lifecycle Communities is pre-seeded with a set of common Agile best practice topics that were created by Agile coaches and evangelists. It's up to you... You can delete these topics and replace them with your own, or easily change them to reflect the specific needs of your organization.

Looking for a specific topic? Type your search terms in the Quick Search box at the top of any page to find matching topics.

Accessing Communities

Click the Collaboration icon in the top right corner of the main menu, and then select a Community in the left navigation menu.

Many pages in the application also have the quick topic reference link (next to the Collaboration link). You can pin relevant topic for each one of the pages to ensure that all users see topics related to that page. For example, the topic on User Story Estimation may be pinned to the Backlog page.
