How to Do an Effective Reorg

Mike Tria
Head of Engineering @ Atlassian


What works today may not work tomorrow – and that includes your org structure. Whether your business is adapting to external trends or company-led initiatives, engineering groups are often the largest group impacted by a reorg, so it’s important to get it right. Reorgs are hard. Some are done too quickly. Some are done too slowly. Some should not be done at all.

In the past decade, Atlassian has reorganized around big bets including its cloud transformation and goal to become a $10 billion company. Mike Tria, Head of Engineering at Atlassian, has played a pivotal role in leading several successful (and unsuccessful) reorgs impacting thousands of engineers.

In this session, Mike will share his tips on understanding when a reorg might be needed, how to partner with cross-functional stakeholders, how to plan and communicate an effective reorg, and how to know if you did it right.
