7 Habits of Highly Innovative Teams

Innovation doesn't just "happen." Whether you know it or not, it is carefully designed by you.

In this talk we will cover all the different tools and processes you need to put in place to make innovation part of your teams DNA. Through the use of improv exercises, Atlassian innovation case studies, and a little design thinking, we will send you home with the framework you need to set up your own program of innovation.

A Habit of Innovation

What does it mean when we talk about innovation? We often talk about the end result of innovation as a breakthrough product or a new service. But how do we get there? Moreover, how do we create a culture that consistently and predictably delivers innovative solutions to every facet of our work? Join me to hear about some of the strategies that GoPro uses to build a habit of innovation.

Building on the Shoulders of Giants: the Story of Bitbucket Pipelines

When the Atlassian Dev Tools team looked to innovate on continuous integration and delivery, we explored many ways to bring the build and deployment pipeline closer to developers and Bitbucket. This led us to think outside the existing product boundaries of Bamboo and build on top of the Bitbucket Connect platform.

James Bryant, a senior designer on the Software Team, will take you through how his team decided to build on top of a platform instead of building out new products. It involves defining a vision, guiding a team with an experience, and testing with customers early and often to build the new Bitbucket Pipelines feature.

You’ll come away from this session with a framework for adopting an experience-driven strategy, and tips to help give your agile teams a vision to build on top of a platform.

Learn how Atlassian has been building and experimenting with machine learning to build smarter experiences in our products and supporting systems.

Grassroots Innovation in the Enterprise

Perhaps the most under-utilized assets in most companies are the ideas in employees’ heads. For that reason, this session aims to help attendees learn three key things:

  • How to tap into employees' passions to drive growth
  • A useful model for assessing whether your innovation programs are effective
  • How to use our “recipe book” to build a cohesive innovation program that drives growth

This session is meant to cover the case for employee-driven innovation – including success stories and data points. We'll also provide access to the tools, playbooks, and templates that can accelerate innovation programs in your company.

How Atlassian's User Research Went Agile (and So Can Yours)

In late 2015, we set up Atlassian Atlab: a low-budget customer research space that tightly integrates into the Agile sprint process. What began as an experiment quickly became an indispensable part of our company’s design process. Atlab is now international, run in all of our offices, gathering input from about 200 customers every month.

In this talk, we will teach you why agile research is a crucial part of building great customer experiences, how to create stakeholder buy-in for your efforts, best practices for conducting research, and what to do with your findings. We will also teach you how to set up your very own Atlab. Warning: it’s very cheap, and easier than you may expect!

How We Re-imagined and Simplified Confluence Bit by Bit

Though we called it The Confluence Simplify project, our complete overhaul of the navigation experience in Confluence was anything but simple. With a goal to make the product more accessible, understandable, and useful to every user and every team, we were challenged to do this radical project in an incremental way.

Knowing that large visual changes to products can fail spectacularly, we've done everything we can to validate what we're building, ship fast, and ship often. Come hear how we implemented this change, what we learned while attempting this project, and how you can apply these learnings to your nice big audacious project!

Painting a Vision for Your Product

Product without vision is dead. A lot has been said about the importance of vision setting, but not much has been shared about how to actually do it. Atlassian has been through several vision setting projects for individual products as well as for the whole company. Throughout these experiences, we've learned a lot about how to practically do this. This talk will share a highlights reel containing the top tips you can take back to your product teams and use for your next vision setting project.

Walk Before You Run: Designing JIRA and Confluence Mobile

Isn't it crazy that Atlassian is just now getting into mobile? That's what many would think of a tech company in this day and age with over 50,000 customers, 1,600+ employees, and no mobile app. With the amount of computing power packed into our mobile devices, it would seem obvious that every tech company would develop mobile apps-- right?

Yes, and, it's complicated. With 12 products we've built over our 13-year history, that's a whole lot of information and functionality to fit into such a small screen.

Follow Marc Reisen, designer and Atlassian's Mobile Design team lead, on a journey beyond the minimum viable experience to explore how considering our customer feedback while taking a scalable approach to mobile app development set a great foundation for our mobile pursuits both today and in the future.
