Driving Confluence Adoption
Abstract: Confluence is a great tool for creating content together: it’s easy to add, discuss, and correct content. But why do some teams struggle to get people working in Confluence? Why do your co-workers still email files back and forth?
This talk will show you how to build a culture of effective collaboration with many examples from various organizations. We'll show practices and tools that can help your teams to better manage documents and documentation in Confluence.
Speaker: Matt Reiner

Abstract: Adopting agile methodologies in a large organization is never easy—what looks great on paper, may not work in real life. Luckily, Jira offers the flexibility to support almost any process. And it can adapt to changes as the process evolves.
In this session we'll talk about some of the challenges associated with Scaling Agile, the things you need to consider when choosing the right Jira apps, and some of the successful approaches we've seen customers use. We’ll show you some easily-implemented use cases for common agile rituals such as PI planning, release planning, and backlog grooming, at scale.
