When Best Practices Aren’t Good Enough—Creating a Culture of Experimentation and Innovation

A conversation with in-the-trenches HR hacker Joris Luijke

Twelve-year-old Australian software company Atlassian was founded with the intent to become “a different kind of software company.” It’s leaders understood that would require a very different way of working. The result: the company stands out as much for its fresh, energetic, relentlessly clever approach to engaging and unleashing people as it does for the software development and collaboration tools it makes.

As VP of Talent & Culture at Atlassian until recently (and now VP of People at Squarespace), Joris Luijke is a true in-the-trenches HR hacker. He has brought a spirit of experimentation and inventiveness to rethink every traditional HR function and people practice—from fundamentally reinventing the performance review to creating a robust culture of awake, connected, engaged peers. In this Maverick Hangout, we roll up our sleeves and get practical about the role HR can play in increasing organizational agility. Joris shares his favorite hacks, describes how HR can drive innovation, and unpacks what it takes to create a productive experimental laboratory for new management approaches.

Read Joris' award-winning MIX story on Atlassian's Big Experiment with Performance Reviews and his story on Atlassian's "Self-Correcting Organization."
