This month, blubolt were lucky enough to be joined by Bernie Ferguson, the Senior Program Manager for renowned software company Atlassian. Flying in from Australia as part of a European tour, Bernie’s visit was to give us a special insight into their newly published training guide, The Team Playbook. 

Atlassian are known for creating tools such as JIRA, Confluence, HipChat and many more. The software they’ve designed has helped to improve the productivity of over 75,000 companies worldwide, including ourselves.

At blubolt, we use their tools on a daily basis and each system has helped to streamline our workflow and generally improve company-wide communication. So we were particularly excited to get an insight into their latest initiative, The Team Playbook.

Once he arrived at the blubolt offices, Bernie worked 1-on-1 with each department, introducing the guide and running-through some of the key training sessions with us.

Our Support Team run through The Plays

Unlike generic “team building” activities, Atlassian’s book is by teams, for teams. It contains step-by-step guides for running a team Health Monitoring Workshop and plays that optimise your team’s abilities to get stuff done.

So with this in mind, each department got stuck in and we found the hour-long sessions to be easy, fun and incredibly insightful. The Health Monitor Workshops were the main exercises we explored during the sessions. They were a great way for the members of each team to speak openly and get to the root of any problems they may be encountering. Working together on these thoughts even meant some departments were able to come up with tangible solutions to issues they’ve been stuck on.

Overall, there were some incredibly positive responses from the blubolt team. So much so in fact that many departments are planning to take them up as regular sessions.

We’d like to say a big thank you to Atlassian and Bernie Ferguson for taking the time to fly over and work through the Playbook with us. There were a lot of takeaways from the day and many of the things we’ve learnt will be incorporated, like so many of their tools, into our daily lives at blubolt.
