Lightning Talk: A Modern Work Manifesto for High-Functioning Teams

“Modern work” is a puzzle many are struggling to figure out. To realize its potential (and avoid its pitfalls), we believe teams need to rethink the work foundation. Based on thousands of customer inputs, we’re ready to show you the 8 key principles for modern work success.

No matter your organization’s workforce dynamic, the truth is that you are part of a distributed team. Standard work practices often cause more friction than flow. Leaders must find new ways to help teams effectively collaborate and achieve the desired outcomes for their businesses.

Atlassian, a modern work pioneer, is well-known for developing technologies and practices that help organizations maximize the effectiveness of their distributed workforce. In this, the first episode of our new limited-run series of Lightning Talks exploring Modern Work topics, Atlassian’s Head Work Futurist, Dominic Price, will delve into the Modern Work Manifesto, an aggregation of over 8 years of work with hundreds of organizations around the globe.
