New member introductions to the Teamwork Lab group

Edited

If you're new, welcome!

The way the members of this group engage with each other is entirely based on the type of members that join. Thank you for bringing an open mind, thoughtful questions, and any wisdom you have to share with others seeking different perspectives.

All that said, our members will benefit from knowing the type of people that join this group. Perhaps knowing your background will spark a question. Perhaps the teams or type of company you work with will generate solidarity. Perhaps you have the most unique situation and others want to learn more about what they don't know. Whatever the case, consider responding to at least two of the icebreaker questions in the comments.

Tell us about yourself and pick at least two of these icebreaker questions to answer.

  1. What type of team or company do you work for and what makes it unique?
  2. What is an antiquated way of working and how would you want to see it change?
  3. What do you hope to get out of this group?
  4. What do you hope to bring to this group?
  5. If we held fortnightly Q&As (scheduled "Ask Me Anything" discussions), what kind of subject matter experts (SMEs) do you have questions for?

@Christine P_ Dela Rosa - love this icebreaker intro idea!

  1. What type of team or company do you work for and what makes it unique? I work with a SWAT team of engineers at a large firm. While we all bring a special set of skills to the table, we could always use a little more structure. No pun intended.
  2. What do you hope to get out of this group? I love looking for lifehacks (including workhacks). Discovering fresh ways to encourage collaboration helps in any situation, work or personal.

Hi @Christine P_ Dela Rosa thank you for starting this thread.

1. What type of team or company do you work for and what makes it unique?

I work for a biopharmaceuticals client with 80,000+ employees relentlessly working in developing life saving medicines. The uniqueness about the client is they are open for ideas, suggestions, welcoming change and constructive feedback.

2. What do you hope to get out of this group?

The plethora of knowledge, experiences that addressed issues, better ways of seeing and working using tools that sustain for long and has potential improvements.

So great to hear that the client is open to feedback and change! That's at the core of growth, right, @G subramanyam At the same time, it's sad that this trait is unique when that should be foundational for great teams.

Let's hope this group takes that cue and embodies the idea of sustainable growth.

Yes @Christine P_ Dela Rosa their is a reason behind my point. In my experience, the projects with other organizations had preferred to go with existing flows as a safe bet rather than envisioning change and it's stance in the long run. That made me to place the "foundational" areas as unique set when I see my current client welcome changes and don't shy away for trying their hands.

I work for a media company, which produces a couple of daily radio shows, several podcasts, live events, a couple of books a year, and LOTS of content in general - blogs, articles, landing pages, curriculum, etc. So we are very unique in the types of team members using Jira and how interconnected everyone is. 

We are fast growing - adding a dozen people every two weeks - and just topped 1,000 team members. So I am interested how others have scaled up effectively without spending all of your time in meetings.

I have more than 25 years of work experience, so hopefully I can contribute the experience I have as to what not to do. :-)

Would love some SME expert advice on how to let workers have plenty of heads down time working while also collaborating as needed to keep ideas fresh and flowing.

  1. What type of team or company do you work for and what makes it unique? I work on a team that focuses on modernizing old systems.  This includes applications, business processes, policy, etc.  
  2. What is an antiquated way of working and how would you want to see it change? I think anyone who is not flexible and willing to change is antiquated.  Being nimble and able to quickly change to improve the team, productivity, and overcome issues is key.
  3. What do you hope to get out of this group?  Learn from others so I can change and improve my team.

Hi @Jose Luis Gaitan Hernandez ! I'm based in San Francisco, so I'm always curious to hear from folks outside the US to see if there are cultural approaches to agile. I'm finding that's true, but I don't know all the nuances.

Beyond evolving ways of working, you sound very into evolving yourself (and others). I'm all about that and want to see that energy infused into this group. And since you're here and active, I'm hopeful that this group will indeed grow to embody that.

Love it. Love that philosophy. Love that you're bringing it.

Hello!

I'm new to this group and looking forward to participating from sunny SoCal. I'm a trained Product Manager that loves Project Management, planning, organization etc. I work best when there is a well defined box to play in so I love organizational process.

I currently work at a private company whose mission it is to make car buying easier through content, data, and research tools. We are going public and from my previous experience working in public companies, I know we are going to face an uphill battle of organizational change that will be required for us to be compliant with US regulations. I hope to get lots of support here with best practices for change management. 

Thank you,

Welp, this group is new as well! We just started this month so you are actually one of this group's pioneers, @Martina Banev smile

And as for defined sandboxes, you and I are of a similar mind. I think too much structure can stifle, but if I had to pick a side, I'd say companies would benefit from a little more structure. Guidelines are meant to create order and improve work so I see them as generally positive.

As for your company's upcoming transition, you're probably right that there will be organizational changes, so you're wise to anticipate it. Will part of your role be to help transition the company? 

@Christine P_ Dela Rosa, yes! I will need to support the product & tech teams through any required changes, especially related to SOX and accounting compliance.

Hi, @Paloma Fondon Araujo!

Sounds like you have a lot of adapting for different clients, and in turn, different sets of change management. I'm excited to learn from you here.

Regarding a lack of focus on employee morale, I agree with you. It has been scientifically proven time and again that happier teams are both healthier and higher performing. It's time companies make individual and team health a priority and not just when burnout is high. Great point!

Like Paloma Fondon Araujo likes this

Hi @Christine P_ Dela Rosa

We are really in constant change and therefore learning and it is really fun, it is true that there are customers of all kinds, but it is very rewarding to start a new project with the illusion of helping customers in their day to day, (in my case) with Atlassian tools. Some people do not manage change well, it makes them leave their comfort zone and that is not comfortable, but I also think that you have to have an open mind and a great team by your side and things just flow.

I totally agree with you, I have worked in other companies in the sector and I can compare and affirm that the culture of team building, making people feel good and be part of the joint decision making and not unilateral, makes you want to improve every day in what you do and this ultimately has a direct impact on customers.

Happy employees = satisfied customers.

Thank you for your response. Best regards!

Jack Brickey Community Leader Aug 07, 2021

Hello all! I am late to the game introducing myself here as I’ve been part of the group for few weeks now. I had a few moments so thought I would take this opportunity to complete the task.

  1. i’ve been working for my current company for about five years now. Historically I have been leading software and hardware engineering teams in product development. However in my current company my role is quite different. I am much more focused on operations and services. I still run the engineering and IT teams but it’s just a different end product if you will.
  2. There’s a lot of great things about the company I work for now however there are a lot of old ways of thinking and doing things. I continually look to improve and to make the company more productive scalable and current. In fact this is where Atlassian fits in pretty heavily. I’ve had recently good success in moving the company towards where I think we should be but there’s still plenty of opportunity. A number of people still live in breathe by spreadsheets for project management. Some folks just simply do not wish to change.
  3. I am always interested in hearing from others and how they bring about change in their organization. Well I have been around a long time and then a lot in many different companies I always pick up some little tidbit of goodness from talking to others.
  4. Given my experience in my past I certainly hope that I can take the time to contribute to this group and share the things that have made me and my teams successful.
  5. Given my past experiences and my current focus I would love to have Q and a sessions around non-development team operations. It would be great to learn from others how they leverage products such as those Atlassian provides to garner improvements in our teams work more affectively.

Re: #1, I feel the same way - ITSM is very much a product-oriented operation. What IS in our service catalog, and why? What isn't in our service catalog, and why? Who are our customers, and how can we best serve them?

Re: #2 and #3, I've been able to convince a number of folks to move from Excel docs on a shared drive to using Google Sheets. It's a stepping stone to getting folks onto something like Confluence Cloud. It's always a challenge trying to find the right collection of tools to get the job done.

I’ll be sure to look out for Q&A opportunities with companies and teams that are not in the product development space.

Welcome, @Christophe Noualhat ! 

First of all, it's so interesting how some parts of a company utilize one way of working and another using a different way. It sounds like you wish management would adopt the same agile methodologies that your teams practice. I know that scaling agile can be tough, so maybe your management team can join this group and get some tips wink ...maybe even from you haha.

As for moral support, you've come to the right place! Our Jira Admins group has a lot of discussions about how to utilize Jira there, but we're also available to chat.

Regarding your SME requests, are the topics you suggested regarding their application to Jira or in general?

Thanks @Christine 

Yes, some parts of our company globally use jira/agile/scrum but there are pockets of resistance in the management here and there relying on previous methods

As for the SME requests, as they relate to JIRA, i.e. how can we best

- do project management using Jira

- do financial reporting using Jira

- integrate Jira with ERPs etc...

We found ways to close this gaps but I'm sure there are other ways, better ways :)

I am not new at this point, but I have not been here long enough for my blue book value to have diminished too much, so I am finally posting my long overdue intro.

  • What type of team or company do you work for and what makes it unique?
    • I am the COO at a Fintech that is focused on the Payments space. Although I am COO, we have a very flat organizational structure and I am in the weeds every day with our forward facing teams solving customer problems. What makes us unique is that although we are a company that boasts amazing technology at low customer cost, we lead with our service. Everyone in the organization from left to right (we cannot be top to bottom with a flat structure can we?) is hyper-focused on creating amazing customer experiences. 
  • What do you hope to get out of this group?
    • Since I've already been active in the group, this is a mulligan putt, but I'll take it! I'm looking to get out exactly what I have so far. Thought provoking conversation, ideas and concepts that will help make our people and organization smarter, better and constantly growing.  
  • What do you hope to bring to this group?
    • I hope to reciprocate that which I look to get out of the group. Quality engagement that is thought provoking and positive. If you ever see me missing the mark on that goal, call me out!

Hello @Christine P_ Dela Rosa , love the idea of this icebreaker! 

 

  1. What type of team or company do you work for and what makes it unique? I've just started working for a consulting business, which seems to be really amazing as we have the opportunity to works with different clients so we can improve different skills. :)
  2. What is an antiquated way of working and how would you want to see it change? I believe that an antiquated way of working is when you do not have the flexibility to explore your different skill sets to bring more benefits to the company. Sometimes we have passions that are outside of our position/work, and if the company knows how to explore this too, it will bring benefit for both the company and the employee.

Welcome, @Tommy Augustine! You'll find a lot of folks like yourself in this group and the Community in general :)

We hold AMAs on a wide range of topics. We've had experts discuss hackathons, async vs sync collaboration, scaling agile across an organization, and even a team who shared lessons on the 4-day work week. Basically, this group's AMAs focus on workplace practices.

Most recently, we had workplace psychologists speak about workplace happiness and sustainable teamwork practices (here's the page). Next up, we have a coach coming to talk about the relationship between our physical bodies and how they manifest work behavior or mentalities (here's that page). The first AMA I mentioned was async and the Q&A occurred on the page while the second AMA I mentioned is going to be a live Zoom event. 

As for integration experts, maybe we can team up with some of our other Community's groups to host a join event on those more technical topics! Thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks! I'm really happy to find a group like this to collaborate and learn with other Atlassian Admins.

I have one more suggestion, and I hope you don't think I'm crazy: Add Cube Swag to the Atlassian store. My company is still in Hybrid mode, but I have noticed more colleagues coming in starting this month. I cheated and got a custom Atlassian cube rug made! Since I'm the first titled Atlassian Admin for the company, the method behind my madness was only to make it visible where the "Jira Guy" sits. But another unexpected & positive from doing this was the buzz it generated: A number of people I never met stopped at my cube to talk about Atlassian; I.T. thought I was getting better swag from the CSM on the low; and I met 4 scrum masters I never knew sat near me on the first day. One of them suggested I forward this suggestion to Atlassian because he thought it was a brilliant marketing campaign y'all are doing. 

Anyway, thanks for having me and I look forward to learning from you all!
