From my personal experience, (pre Agile and the Digital Revolution) Product Metrics have been around for quite some time, but were being identified as something like Project Benefits or Benefits Realisation Metrics. The Benefits Realisation process would identify metrics, benefits or value a project may have to the organisation. The only issue was that these were specifically created and centred around the project itself (which obviously were valuable at the time).
I don't blog often. In fact, if I’m honest, I’ve never blogged before. Whilst I’ve admired the work of others from afar, it’s honestly never occurred to me to write my own. But what better time than lockdown to try and stretch my creative legs and see how I get on (probably a little late to the party but hey ho, it's always good to start!).
Bored of lockdown yet? Yeah… us too. Not seeing friends and family, juggling work and home life in a far more intense way than before, and now if I only eat 3 entire packets of biscuits a day, I’m practically on a diet. I knew I should have bought shares in McVities…
‘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.
New Years. Fireworks, friends, and a toast (or two) to all the things you swear you’ll do this year (that you also swore you would do last year…). Sounds great doesn’t it? Full of energy, ambition and hope for the next 12 months.
Things are getting a little worrying out there, and the focus is quite rightly shifting to keeping people safe and healthy. Working remotely is now something every business across the country is implementing, some of whom will never have worked this way before.
We are super excited to be welcoming a new addition to the team - meet the awesome Emma Hopkinson!
