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!
So something I've wanted to do for a while is start a Community arm of Nimble. I've wanted to get in a comfortable place though where I feel we can invest time and effort in doing this and avoid trying to discipline myself whilst growing a fast paced business and ultimately; let's face it, doing it half heartedly.
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***
I feel it's true of running a lean people driven collective (like I am now) and I had the same feeling when I think back to being a member of a cross functional delivery team. The beauty of a team who have different skills is that everyone thinks in different ways and therefore each brings something different to the collective pot.
Last month saw the 2 year anniversary of the leap I made to start growing Nimble, beyond the brand I set up whilst freelancing. When I reflected a year ago, Nimble was just starting to grow as an independent collective. Just when I thought we couldn’t beat the crazy adrenaline rush of 2017, 2018 turned up and surpassed all expectations for the team here at Nimble.
We were delighted to be invited by Sheffield Digital for Chris to speak to them about Nimble on their Friday podcast
Let’s get this out of the way first. This is not an original idea. Temporary teams capable of taking on complex projects have existed for decades. Hollywood is a great example, Producers assemble teams of directors, writers, actors, designers and a variety of other specialists to deliver projects with budgets in the tens if not hundreds of millions.
Ironically, I was agonising over that very question whilst drafting another blog when it hit me, the above question is the blog!
It's a massive, massive day for Nimble. Its been an incredible 6 months in which we’ve trebled the size of the company, launched 2 pop up squads and set some real solid foundations taking the company to the next level while still saying true to our lean values
