New Team Playbooks - Embracing remote teamwork

Brant Schroeder Community Leader Apr 24, 2020

Atlassian release six new team playbooks about embracing remote teamwork.

  • My User Manual
  • Project Poster
  • Inclusive Meetings
  • Stand-ups
  • "4Ls" Retrospective
  • Learning Circle

After reviewing the new playbooks we decided to do the 4Ls retrospective as part of our  review process to change things up.  Doing this prior to completing our reviews this month provided different insights that team members were able to use in their reviews with their supervisor.  It was a beneficial activity that we are looking at implementing on each review.

Share how your teams are using the new team playbooks and the benefits they have had using them.

We're an Agile shop, so our Daily stand-ups transitioned pretty easily and we try to embrace remote.  We'd be lost without Jira and Confluence right now!

I'm excited to check out some of the other playbook options and see if we can find anything to help us work better.  This remote option has already lasted longer than anyone thought.

Thanks for posting @Brant Schroeder

HUGE fan of the Playbook content. We especially appreciate the Allthethings Prioritization Matrix. We've been using it to help prioritize video development projects. Has anyone figured out a way to execute this remotely? We're coming up on our planning season and want to leverage the method again.

I've recommended - and continue to recommend - Atlassian's Team Playbooks to anyone needing a starting point on dealing with various business challenges. Why reinvent the wheel?

In addition to Atlassian's suggestions on how to conduct retrospectives, there are tons of retro templates online. It's most important that teams conduct retrospectives, than how they do so.

@Dave Liao is there a Retro template you really like out there?

Dave Liao Community Leader Nov 18, 2020

@Becky Rubenstein - I don't have any personal favorites.

Like I mentioned to Deepanshu below, I prefer retrospective formats that encourage an improvement mindset, instead of griping. 😅

I have found "4Ls Retrospective" to be really helpful.

Dave Liao Community Leader Oct 29, 2020

@Deepanshu Natani - Oh wow, I haven't conducted a 4Ls retro in years! Good suggestion. I love (the 5th "L") that this retro states "Lacked" instead of "Bad", which tends to push teams to suggest improvements instead of complaints.

I prefer retrospective formats that encourage positive, constructive feedback, like the 4Ls. Certain retro formats are more open, which is appropriate when there's no limit to ideas that can be presented AND if a team is very comfortable with each other. 😄

Hello, Team Playbook fans! Do you really know how everyone on your team is doing right now? And while we’re on the subject, have you taken the time to check in with yourself? The past year has impa...
