At first glance, the two concepts of Agile and Enterprise at scale seem to be at odds with each other. The former gives the impression of skill, speed, and being light-footed, and the latter: plodding, slow to change, and awkward. So how do you know when to employ what?
Teams are increasingly using Confluence Blueprints as templates in order to set up documentation quickly and consistently. These blueprints simplify the processes of both creating and filling out documents with page structures tailor made for their respective use cases. With Blueprint Creator for Confluence you can quickly create blueprints with little effort, even if you don’t have any prior programming experience. The administrator has an intuitive editor which allows you to create advanced templates for blog entries, pages, and even entire sections.
No longer is it a special case for companies and their teams to find themselves in a meeting with participants who aren’t sitting (or standing) in the room with them. It’s critical for clients and stakeholders to be involved in communicating and coordinating with external partners. Teams are often distributed or they have individual team members who work remotely. Since I’m a remote employee who is a part of a local Scrum team at //SEIBERT/MEDIA, I have a lot of experience in this area which I’d like to share with you in this article.
Are you thinking about implementing the scaled agile framework (SAFe) in order to meet your business needs? Curious about how Atlassian tools can help you achieve your goals?

The process of transitioning into a modern agile company has come with occasional growing pains. We had to take many of our traditional ways of thinking and throw them out of the window. Several of our classic methods and tools ended up being mothballed. Power had to be redistributed. See how Martin explains his approach as a leader in an agile company in this keynote presentation at Audi AG in Ingolstadt.
Paul Pasler shares some insights gained at this year’s Scrum Day conference in Stuttgart. From leadership to decision making, the “done” increment to using Scrum for good – the conference certainly delivered plenty of food for thought.

Technical teams in many companies work happily and successfully with Jira – but software that has a reputation for being a development system is not normally something which the Average Joe can also use for their work. When such a person starts working with Jira for the first time, they may be a little overwhelmed by the depth of the system’s many features and functions. Nevertheless, we and many of our customers use Jira with completely different teams and company departments. The advantages of Jira are not limited to just our technical teams. You can clearly see the advantages that Jira brings to all sorts of teams when you focus on its ability to be transparent, its visualizations and how it inspires collaboration rather than technical integration.
What does an agile organization with remote teams and only one location need to do to support their teams? What are the hurdles and how can they be overcome effectively? And who is actually suited to be a remote employer or employee? Here are some experiences and my thoughts.
