Head of Global Design, Atlassian
Keynote #5 @ Summit 1 Hall
4 years ago Atlassian had 6 designers. Fast forward to today and the design team numbers more than 120. Building and managing a design team of this size is one thing, integrating it successfully into a traditionally engineering led organisation is another. Jurgen Spangl (Head of Design) will share how Atlassian has successfully embraced design as a first-class discipline and how it is changing from being an engineering-led, to an experience-led company. Growing design at a company on that scale also means a lot of personal change. Hear from Jurgen how he had to adapt to keep up with the pace. At the end of the session, you’ll be armed with a basic playbook for how to be comfortable managing your team of designers to affect meaningful change within any organisation.
