Making Integration Successful from Both Sides of the Deal
“Agile is perfect for integration, because integration never goes exactly the way you think.”
This M&A Science episode is a recap from our virtual summit in June. In this particular session, guest panelist Christina Amiry, Head of M&A Strategic Operations, Integration at Atlassian, and Steve Elliott, Head of Jira Align at Atlassian talks about how to make integration successful from both sides of the deal. Get an inside look at the integration experience at Atlassian, how their team makes the process as smooth as possible, and how they create an environment that fosters success for both sides.
Christina and Steve also share tips on how to drive a collaborative environment, getting alignment between both parties, and how their team utilizes plans and plays to drive success. Together they tell listeners which tools they can implement in order to improve communication and what kind of culture changes to expect during integration. Hear hard lessons learned during their time at Atlassian from the unique perspective of both sides of the deal and why Agile was the perfect technique to execute a successful transaction.
