‘Unprecedented’. A word we seem to be hearing on repeat at the moment. And rightly so – if someone had told me 6 months ago that we would be in this situation, in all honesty I would have nodded politely and rolled my eyes when they weren’t looking… (I would have been wrong).
If you work in an agile environment, and are now working remotely due to the lockdown, it can be a little daunting, and perhaps a bit bewildering as to how you can possibly keep things agile when you can’t physically get together with your team, and keep things moving across your physical board.
Agile. Scrum. Sprints. Retro’s. Time-boxes… When I first joined Nimble all I could see were question marks when phrases like these were thrown around
It’s official. We’re in lockdown. Most of us are now working from home where we can, and whilst this is absolutely essential, and the best thing to stop the spread of Covid-19, it’s likely that the change in working conditions, as well as the stress of the current uncertainty, is going to have quite a significant impact on mental health.
What a year! 2019. Wow! It will calm down one of these days, maybe when I retire 🤣
More and more organisations are subscribing to the idea of the Agile way of working, and making the snap decision to ‘go Agile’. A fantastic decision given the proven benefits of an Agile transformation; accelerating development of key, value-adding projects, reducing operational waste, enhancing communication and collaboration, creating an adaptable environment.
The other day, Dan Roberts and I went out to meet two of our ‘Nimblers’ for lunch. Not to deliver bad news, not to talk money or contract extensions, but just to see how they were, and how they were enjoying their job. This got me to thinking. Mostly about mental health and wellbeing. How many companies or organisations do you know who would completely forego that side of employing a person?
We’re delighted to announce a significant highlight of our action packed summer - launching our third Nimble community in the thriving city of Manchester.
Hello there! I’m Vic and I’ve joined the Nimble community this week as Operations Specialist. I’m 5”6 (if we’re being generous), my hair colour is ‘tinge of the ginge’, and I enjoy outdoor adventures and musicals…oh and managing all things operations and marketing!
Hi all, I'm Joel and have recently had the privilege of joining the Nimble family as Head of Commercial, which is the corporate way of referring to a man who wears lots of hats, or spins lots of plates ***insert other witty analogy here***
