Does this scenario seem familiar to you?

Mary:  "Hi John, I need a new JIRA project created for the ecological initiative we'll start working on soon."

John:  "Sure Mary, what would you like this new project to be called?  Who will be the project lead? Will you need a task-based workflow or a support-based workflow?  Also, when do you need this created by?"

Mary:  "John, let's call it "Wetlands Reconstruction.  I need it by next week."

John:  "Thanks Mary.  I still need to know who the project lead will be and what type of workflow you desire."

The conversation continues back and forth, likely over a few hours or even days until John finally has the basic information he needs to create a new project.  This is a waste of time.  Instead, create a standard template for each new project request.

Ask your users to answer the following questions as part of their new project request.
