Teamwork in complex environments
According to Okta’s Businesses at Work study, the average company today uses 89 different applications and since 2016, the number of applications has increased by 24 percent. As a result, the information in individual applications is widely distributed and harder to keep track of than ever before.
To ensure enterprise-wide visibility, many make the mistake of standardizing on tool selection using only a few apps. This is rarely helpful, as most of the apps used can bring specific strengths that are lost in the process. This creates a clear breach of partial autonomy.
In these dynamic times, it is particularly difficult to find the balance between a team’s autonomy and its alignment.
To ensure transparency and team alignment at the same time, Atlassian announced a new product at the Atlassian Team ’22 event: Atlas.
Work efficiently with Atlas – and everyone will notice everything
The key to any team’s success lies in the “why?”. Because if no meaning is seen in one’s own work due to a lack of transparency, it’s hard to get up for work every day. If, on the other hand, the meaning behind each intermediate step is transparent so that teams can ideally align their focus, there are no limits to teamwork.
Atlas connects applications, teams, and projects, equipping everyone with a common vocabulary for open communication. This means you can always see the latest information, which would otherwise be widely scattered, at a glance. As a result, you align your teams around a common goal.
Atlas answers these questions:
The answers to these questions should normally be the basis of any team effort. However, you need to know where to get the answers. With Atlas, this is achieved in a playful way and ensures alignment and the appropriate autonomy for your team.
