Conventional wisdom holds that companies are dependent on their best people. But with the bulk of the global workforce on the front lines, this is changing—organizations will now stand or fall based on the performance of the typical employee, not just the strongest performers at the head office. How do we build our teams and engage our people in a way that embraces this new reality?

How do we, as employees and organizations, get better at change, so that it’s a “muscle” we use every day? Atlassian’s resident work futurist, Dominic Price, will discuss how we can influence our people, technology and work practices to drive transformation. He’ll share how Atlassian created the open-source Atlassian Team Playbook, a set of resources for addressing common team challenges, and how teams have since used it to drive their own improvement and adapt their ways of working to our new realities.
