Welcome to the Teamwork Lab!

Our members are an active work in progress.

That means we seek to improve ourselves, and because of that energy, seek to improve our environment and the teams we work with as well.

  • Have you ever gotten stuck trying to improve a process, but every time you hit a roadblock?
  • Does your team want to improve but doesn't have a clear model for how to do that?
  • Is there a way of working you'd like to try but it feels like your team is biased or doesn't want to prioritize experiments?

If so, this is the place for you. The Teamwork Lab is a space for members to bounce ideas off of each other, ask questions from people who have been in your situation before, challenge the status quo of your workplace practices, and debate methodology and usage of tools for the sake of discovering better ways of working.

As a member, you are open to new ideas, agree to be respectful of differing opinions, and if willing, will support the growth and development of others in the group. And like this group's desire to explore ways to improve teamwork, I'm counting on members to influence the way this group works and grows.

To get started, I've collected a few resources below.

  1. Join the group and introduce yourself here.

  2. Create a "Dear Work Therapist" discussion post as we explore ways to get SMEs involved directly with those with questions.

  3. Explore different workshops--"Plays," from the Atlassian Team Playbook.
  4. Sign your team up for a free Team Playbook debriefing Play. 

    For new members to this group, we'll offer an experienced Atlassian facilitator to run a Play from the Atlassian Team Playbook. In exchange, we ask that you write a recap on how the experience felt and any suggestions you have for other teams like yours. Plays available to be run are: 
  5. During our Listening Out Loud series, I interviewed some members of the Atlassian Community about their adjustment to working on distributed teams. This article includes the recap as well as links to individual interviews. It's been almost a year since the series began, but the lessons continue to resonate today.

Thank you for being here. Looking forward to seeing your discussion threads, new articles, and questions posed for other members. Onward!

Hi @Christine P_ Dela Rosa the statement, "That means we seek to improve ourselves, and because of that energy, seek to improve our environment and the teams we work with as well" is what drives Atlassian, end users, companies and starts up's to explore the vast talent and tap the ideas.

I really liked it  ....

Agreed @Laura Holton - a good chunk of my job is actually figuring out how to get folks to work better together (through tactics, bribery, tools, etc.). 😅

@Dave Liao the bribery bit got me 😅

(It works like a charm though!)

Hi @Janaki Joshi ! Welcome to the group :)

If you’re comfortable, I’d love to know more about the process you’re looking to improve. Feel free to respond here or create a “discussion.” Or, if you’d rather check the group out first, maybe just reading all the posts that come through will spark some ideas.

Can’t wait to get more connected with you down the road!

Glad to have found this.  I'm a consultant been doing build / release / devops for almost 30 years.  Agile since 2006.  Just joined on with a new client 3 weeks ago, during my discovery ... the teams need a lot of work.  This looks like it will be a great resource to get them up and moving in a more efficient better quality way.

@Craig Nodwell - sounds like you’ve got a wealth of experience to share with us! Anything you’re specifically hoping to see come to this group—AMA topics, types of discussions, types of experiment insights, etc?

Thanks @Christine P_ Dela Rosa the answer(s) to that question would be a bit of a loaded one.
My experience gives me a lot face time into the black box.
The dedicated career path has allowed me to cross industries.
The last client was a 5 year journey that started from an idea on the clients side for automated testing, it ended with a full blown value stream management delivery pipeline across two federated server organizations, with a new dept. 11 fulltime staff a vendor and management to run it all.
I'm not used to that I usually do implementations re: gather requirements/stand up/migrate/tweak/train and go.  Hence the gunslinger avatar.
Con to this long term client -> I missed a lot of changes in the industry and the tool stack that were outside of the last organizations scope.
So to point, I've just signed on with a new client. 
Up until just a couple years ago they were still doing software delivery via paper tracking/sign-off/release.
They've implemented some practices, some very good, most not so good :)
I'm hoping to bring this group along on the journey.  And hopefully through that engagement avoid some of the pitfall that I experienced the last time.
