When you have 65,000 customers with different needs, who do you listen to? Creating a feedback culture to hear your users is only the first step – translating that feedback into a concrete roadmap is hard, and shipping something is even harder. Join JIRA product managers Helen Xue and Dave Meyer as we share the story of our quest to simplify JIRA. From quick wins to tough trade-offs, you'll learn the strategies and metrics our team used to turn feedback into action. You'll leave with insider knowledge about how we prioritize on JIRA, what we've learned trying to simplify a massive product, and how your team can avoid our mistakes.
Development Team Lead, Atlassian
Ever manage a backlog with more than 200 tasks that include feature requests, bugs, technical debts, external requirements, etc? Yeah, we do too! So, which one would you pick first? Who should pick? How do you decide on which task gets prioritized over other items in your backlog? Whether you are a Product Manager, a Development Manager or a Team Lead, if you manage backlogs day-to-day, this talk's for you. Carlos Khatchikian, Jira Mobile Team Lead, will share tips and tricks on how to keep your backlog sane. Using Jira Software backlog functionality and techniques such as relative sizing and sprints for categorization, you'll be able to keep your backlog as healthy as a stylish neat beard.
Program Manager, Mobile, BAMTech (previously, MLB Advanced Media)
Director, MLB Advanced Media (BAMTech)
BAMTech (previously, MLB Advanced Media)
BAMTech (previously, MLB Advanced Media) is scaling to deliver video streaming for baseball and is growing its roster of sports, news and entertainment clients. Managing both business and development needs in one system takes a lot of communication and teamwork. Without the right tools, it can quickly become chaos. Join Judette Platz, Program Manager for Mobile and Kristy Saunders, Program Director for Connected Devices, to learn how BAMTech uses Jira Software, Confluence, and other marketplace apps to close communication gaps between teams, increase transparency, and improve collaboration.
Senior Manager, Jira Software Product Marketing, Atlassian
Principal Product Manager, Atlassian
Ever wondered how internal Atlassian teams push Jira Software to the limit? At Atlassian each team defines a process that best meets their unique needs and challenges. In this talk Product and Marketing Management duo Jason Wong and Jake Brereton will share insights into how Atlassian teams harness and stress test Jira Software to get their teams humming. You'll leave this session with a behind-the-scenes look at how our teams:
Senior Program Manager, eBay
Are you using tools and spreadsheets such as Microsoft Project or Google docs to manage your project? They certainly appear fast and easy at first, but they can easily become unwieldy within the first week of the start of your project. A month later, you may have 100 columns and 500 rows! At eBay, this was the case for a few teams until they decided to try a small experiment using JIRA. The goal was to empower teams to better manage their work and provide them with better tools to work with. Jon Bach, Senior Program Manager for Contact Reduction at eBay, will unravel what happened next that helped bring a more relational and extensible approach to managing projects as compared to the the flat nature of spreadsheets.
It's no secret that scaling agile is a challenge both culturally and operationally. So, how do other companies do it? How do they achieve success and what do their journeys look like? Bree Davies, Portfolio for Jira Product Manager, will detail one such case study of how a large insurance company with 12 software teams collaborate, plan and track their work to deliver value to their customers continuously. You will hear about a company's transformation to scale agile and how tools such as Jira Software and Portfolio for Jira have been key to their operational and cultural success. Plus, you'll walk away with tips and tricks to use Portfolio for Jira efficiently for your own long term planning.

Sherif thinks building simple products is hard and so is writing a simple, short bio.
A PM and a designer walk into a bar... that's a joke on it's own! Trying to plan and collaborate across different teams whilst creating a cohesive culture can sometimes feel like a pipe dream, especially with functions such as design and product management that compliment each other. Backed by extensive research, Atlassian's Sherif Mansour, Product Manager, and Alastair Simpson, Head of Design for Platform, Mobile and Comms, share practical tips on how to take this relationship to the next level. You will walk away with ideas and techniques that can help improve the PM-Design relationship, help build world-class software and of course, a few laughs as they explore some anti-patterns along the way.
Trello Product Management Lead, Atlassian
Trello spans teams of all sizes and in just about every industry. With Trello enterprise, companies can now manage users and teams more seamlessly while also being certain that their enterprise content is safe and secure.
In this session, Nikita Dyer, Enterprise Product Manager, will give you a sneak peak into how Trello is building out the Enterprise product to support administrators and teams.
Product Manager, Stealth Startup
Launching a product can be a herculean task to any team, particularly a product team. With relentless prioritization, requirements revisions, and status reporting, Product Managers are often overwhelmed. It was no different at Square, but one product team decided to try something different.
Ronald Lai, ex Product Manager at Square, will discuss how his team used JIRA Software and Confluence to automate workflows to replace their most time-consuming tasks and focused on creating product value.
Great product managers are adapting as their teams transition from building products to running services and are embracing DevOps.
Learn how Atlassian product managers take on service ownership, incorporate reliability and performance into their roadmaps, and handle incidents as our cloud offerings grow more complex.
As a Product owner, you'll learn how you can contribute to running services just as much as building products, how to contribute to incident management and review, support a green build culture, plan for reliability, and roll out features and experiments in a services-first world.
