Project17 - in association with Callaghan Innovation - are thrilled to announce that Dominic Price, Head of R&D and Work Futurist at Atlassian will be visiting Auckland for two events. At this 3hr interactive Masterclass - Leading in the 'New' World - Price will be sharing more in-depth stories and strategies over the course of the morning. Direction and specific content will be shaped through discussion with attendees. This event is limited to 30 attendees.

"The industrial revolution left us with a lot of process and habits that don't lend themselves to the modern work environment or employee. How can we all revolutionise the way we work as leaders to inspire those around us, in this world of high tech change, millennials, disruption and competition? Atlassian has done this through the Team Playbook and open-source methodology that can be used by any team, anywhere to build new muscle."

Tea, coffee and morning tea will be provided.

From humble beginnings as a two-man team in 2002, Atlassian has grown into a global powerhouse, with over 2,000 staff and 16 acquisitions since 2006 (most recently, Atlassian acquired Trello for US$425 million). With more than 68,000 customers, millions of IT and DevOps users and a market cap of over US$6 billion, Atlassian knows a thing or two about scaling and innovation.

Growth, particularly explosive growth, that catapults a company from a handful of staff into the thousands, is the stuff of entrepreneurs' dreams. And yet huge monolithic global companies are not usually known for innovation. Something about size and scale seems to inhibit leanness, change and rapid iteration. Not so Atlassian. They remain innovative, consistently streamlining and improving, and consistently topping 'best places to work' lists in Australia and the US.

Price admits that growing at such supersonic speed presented unique challenges that few firms ever have to deal with.

"If we're all going to get hit by tech change, competitors, new industries and high customer expectations, then how can we innovate and disrupt from within? What are the mistakes and pitfalls - and what have we tried that has enabled us to stay innovative, from 10 people, to over 2,000?"
