6 Strategies to Uncover Growth Opportunities for Your Business
If there is one commonality between all the fast growth company success stories like Airbnb, Uber, or HubSpot, it's that they're all crazy about measuring and tracking their data and numbers. In order to grow fast, you have to know where your growth comes from and where you lose. However, there's a second part of the equation that is equally important, yet less discussed and that is the qualitative side to growth. Companies also need to be able to understand the why, why they're growing (or not), and that answer is not always found in data. In this talk, I will describe both the quantitative and qualitative ways you can uncover growth opportunities for your business through experimentation. Experimentation can help you build and validate your product's roadmap and ensure you're focusing your resources on what will bring growth.
Black Belt Tips for JIRA Software
JIRA Software is an extremely flexible and powerful tool, which can be used in a variety of ways. As 9-year Atlassian veterans, we'll outline the innovative ways JIRA Software is being used within Atlassian, and what features our teams find most useful to enhance their processes.
We'll cover practical tips, such as how we run Scrum and Kanban, and how we've customized projects and boards to best plan, track, and ship software with the precision of a black-belt judo master.
Essentials of Agile User Story Mapping at Twitter
In this session you'll learn how agile teams at Twitter create user story maps to better understand their customers and communicate delivery milestones with internal stakeholders. John will walk through the practice of story mapping and share how a product manager can effectively run a story mapping session with their own team.
How Agile and JIRA Software are Changing a US Government Agency
Our lifecycle engineering support has to ensure that combat, weapon, radar, and surface surveillance systems work effectively together.
Learn how we have integrated Agile practices using JIRA into this ever-changing operational process.
In our large, and highly regulated organization, we have overcome the institutional momentum inherent in the waterfall method, and are developing real operational benefits to our teams to better respond to changing requirements and unplanned events.
Managing the Chaos of Client Collaboration and Physical Deployment
At Helios Interactive when we collaborate with our clients we face an array of challenges: intangible ideas without a clear execution, short timelines, physical deployments, environmental factors, working with new technologies, and clients unfamiliar with digital. Structured workflows are essential for success, but improvisation is unavoidable in key areas. Atlassian tools help us excel in both structured process and quick improvisational thinking, ultimately resulting in better user experiences and happier clients.
Portfolio for JIRA & Kanban: How Thrillist Manages Their Product Roadmap
We at Thrillist need to move fast to stay competitive. That's why we use Kanban. We also need to keep a grip on the big picture, and that's why we use Portfolio for JIRA. Can Kanban work together with high-level planning? Yes, it can.
Dive into the Thrillist process of planning and executing our product roadmap with Portfolio. Learn how the combination of Kanban methodologies with Portfolio can enable a team to become fast, flexible, and forward-thinking.

(Re)Discover JIRA Core: Tricks That Make a BIG Difference
What do nontechnical teams, such as marketing, operations, HR, finance and legal have in common? Even though their processes might be different they can all use JIRA Core to track contracts, candidates, campaigns, approvals, and much more. But there are so many things you can tweak when setting up your team process: workflows, permissions, projects, issue types, etc.
Whether you’re new to JIRA Core, or a power user, we’ll share the best practices for business teams, and give examples of how teams use JIRA Core effectively. You'll learn how to:
- Set up JIRA Core to match your business team's process
- Set up user permissions for approval processes
- Manage issues across different projects
- Handle multiple milestone due dates
Expect tons of examples and aha moments when diving deep into the core of JIRA.
Scaling Agile in an Un-SAFe World
Agile processes work great for small teams, but the challenge comes when trying to scale up. Especially when your team is spread out across different locations and time zones.
At DocSign we hit that wall, too. That's why we've developed our own Product Development Methodology useful for teams working in an enterprise SaaS environment. While it's not perfect it helped us stay agile by incorporating design thinking, agile development and release management into our process.
Join us to learn how we've used JIRA and Confluence to achieve our goals, and how you can do the same, too.
The Art of Building a Roadmap
The process of defining a roadmap is arguably one of the most difficult but important things a product manager has to do. Far too often roadmaps are built without the complete picture in mind, without the right timing, in silos, or are misdirected. How then can we ensure we’re doing it right? Is there really such a thing as an agile roadmap?
This talk will draw from lessons learnt building product to provide practical tips and techniques enabling you to understand roadmap inputs, plan with different perspectives in mind, optimise for learning, communicate and set roadmap goals as well as find agility when the landscape around you changes.
The Future of QA at Atlassian
“Quality at Speed” is Atlassian’s approach to QA, and we are constantly evolving what that means and how it translates to actual dev team processes. Our developers can confidently take on testing activities, while our QA Engineers tackle larger, harder, and bolder challenges. Teams can ship better features, faster, and reach ambitious quality improvement goals.
We'll talk about how our team has embraced this mindset, how this changes our role in dev teams, and the results we want to achieve. We'll cover the different ways that quality can be defined, the importance of fast deployments, and how we work with teams like DevOps, Growth and Customer Insights to help our dev teams and ultimately benefit our users.
Wonders of Portfolio = Long Term Planning + Agility
At comScore, we’ve planned a year’s worth of work for an organization of 140+ members across multiple teams, with several business units all collaborating on various projects. And like many, we’re an organization trying to stay agile along the way. Learn about our successes and lessons that got us to this point, and how implementing Portfolio for JIRA has changed the way we plan.
We’ll go into how we do Capacity Planning, People Management, Schedule Management, and Reporting, with insight from both a PM and Engineering Manager. Find out how teams can leverage Portfolio to strategically plan and quickly adapt to a changing landscape, and track progress on their projects.
