Atlassian Team 2021 Q+A with Christian Stovall

Team2021_Email1_Hero-update (1) (1).png

Hello Community!

Christian just gave a talk, ALSAC/St. Jude’s growth equation = user research + teamwork, at Team 2021. 


Few activities are more significant than ensuring teams can work together to achieve goals. Attendees came away from this session with a deeper understanding of how Atlassian tools can help organizations of any size fulfill their missions. (St. Jude's mission just happens to be finding cures for cancer, NBD).

Christian will be hanging out on Community until next Tuesday, May 4th, to answer all the questions you have for them about his talk! And if you don't have any questions, feel free to drop your biggest takeaway from this session in the comments below.


@Bridget  do you mean here?

@Gonchik Tsymzhitov this is a good place to drop any questions you might have for Christian!

Hi @Bridget , thanks for playing moderator. I have a question for Christian:

Did ALSAC/St. Jude have Jira+Confluence before you arrived? Your talk mentioned they used this tool for 15 years but I was curious if it was incumbent or if you had to advocate for the purchase/implementation.

I really learning about the various integrations your team employ on your instance, did you have issues justifying the purchase of Atlassian Marketplace add-ons? I struggled with that in the past as several integrations would only be used by a small set of users, but we had to pay based on the instance size. Was curious how ALSAC/St.Jude managed the financial part of integrating the integrations.

Thanks again for your talk, I enjoyed this as well as your April 20 livestream with Leisa (didn't know the concept of "social-desirability bias" until that day!)

Hi @pailwhale, Our instances of Confluence and Jira, including add-ons, were easy for us because Atlassian donates their software to non-profit organizations, and we're a non-profit. This means we only have to invest in administration, training, and support. We're grateful to Atlassian for their tremendous generosity because it means more fundraising dollars can go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

I appreciate you watching the talks. And biases are useful to know because they're everywhere all the time. This is our team's favorite diagram about them.

It sounds like you're enjoying the conference. I hope you enjoy the rest!
