Our trainings are delivered by our qualified consultants. All our trainers are certified BigPicture trainers and have a wealth of experience from working on multiple customer projects for customers.

Depending on the attendee’s knowledge, we will start with some basics. If there are specific questions concerning features or individual projects, we will talk them through as well. Your training can be interactive: the participants will log in during the training and try the steps and features. It is also possible to present everything and organize a Q&A session afterwards.

Testimonials

Gabriele Zorn-Pauli

Manager SEP & Tools, Schwäbisch Hall Kreditservice GmbH

“We booked a BigPicture Training with Actonic, with the intention to learn more about individual functionalities and interfaces as well as fixing current performance issues. Actonic offered extensive training hours, which allowed us to ask any question. We’ve received multiple suggestions for products and software from the Atlassian toolstack, which will be very useful for our needs. Our course leader (Anton) responded very well and provided multiple practical examples for specific questions. These live solutions are currently used within our active instances. Thanks for the productive and useful training!”

Julia Deiters

Product and Project management PPM, VITRONIC Dr.-Ing. Stein Bildverarbeitungssysteme GmbH

“Reasons for our consulting/training request for Actonic has been our need to learn more about configuration options in BigPicture. This entailed global configurations in system admin fields, as well as local configurations for permissions and box types. Anton Klein is an experienced and agile consultant and provided multiple best practices for our workflows. He offered several new ideas on how to use BigPicture more efficient in our daily business. Thanks for your effort!”

Flora Hilvano

Agile Coach, National Electric Vehicle Sweden AB

“The Big Picture training was clear, well-structured and well-balanced with high impact result. It was a powerful training which created interest and excitement through hands-on activities. Both SMEs (Gregor and Anton) engaged well with the attendees, explained each point to the fullest and emphasized the key points. They responded well to questions and even provided practical industry examples and best practices. Overall a job well done! Thank you for all your great work, Gregor and Anton.”

Christopher Meissner

Productmanager, EFR GmbH

“The training was well-structured and very informative – a great combination of in-depth knowledge, thorough analysis and excellent feedback, but most importantly, it was very practice-oriented. Definitely beneficial for anyone using Atlassian products. Great job. Please keep it up!”

Edith Hirte

Consultant, Humboldt Forum in Berliner Schloss

Actonic provided training and consulting services for our team, and we are really happy with this collaboration.  The consultations we had were tailored to our specific needs, and the consultants’  expertise and broad experience were exactly what we needed. We got a lot of best practice recommendations, and the training they provided was extremely useful and insightful. We loved the fact that there were two trainers (Amal and Anton) rather than one, as it meant they could answer all our questions – and we had a lot! Our group was very diverse, consisting of people from IT, Marketing, Planning departments, etc, and the trainers handled it brilliantly. Overall, a job well done, thank you!”

Ursula Brüning

Head of IT, TQ-Systems GmbH

“Our experienced Jira team was looking for a customizable training for BigPicture. We’ve decided to pick Actonic, because they offered us a two-day training with Jira admin elements for BigPicture. We had the possibility to choose the main focus and which modules would be discussed. Special was: We received a live system for our training and the attendees were able to test out hands-on what they were shown. Because we liked the customizable and active training process, we can highly recommend Actonic!”

Anna Gorecki

Zentrales Projektmanagement, BKS

“In addition to a BigPicture training for handling different modules, tasks and quickfilters, Actonic supports us in implementing a complex company structure with BigPicture and the reporting app Report Builder. Thanks for that!”

Yaroslav Bashenko

Head of Engagement & Delivery, Ciklum

“To bring innovative ideas to life, we need to rely on innovative solutions. That’s why we booked a training session with subsequent consulting at Actonic to optimize our workflow with Jira and BigPicture.

Thank you for the inspiring knowledge transfer!”
