After a breakneck and really awesome Q1 at Nimble Approach where we've been working on some groundbreaking projects with customers old and new.
The other day I was sat on the tram as usual deep in thought about what makes great Scrum teams. I cast my mind back to previous places I have worked, where I work now and what I liked about various places and the people within them. It may seem pretty obvious, but when I thought about it, it wasn’t actually the way places adopted Scrum like a boss, or how they smashed through the sprints with high quality software and excellent communication and collaboration.
This is the first in a series on agile incentives. In it I will take a number of key roles within an organisation, outline the high-level incentives that person has, and then discuss how the adoption of agile aligns with those incentives. I'm going to start right at the 'top' of the organisation: the Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
I’s absolutely no secret that Andrew started what was an interim role with Nimble.
The greatest way to reinforce to us that we’re doing the right things and working in the right way can only be measured by a) whether our customers want to work with us again or b) (and perhaps more importantly to us) that our people want to continue to work with us or come back to work with us.
We’ve been talking to a lot of people recently and one thing that we keep coming back to is that we have a big network and that network contains a lot of talented people that we’d love to work with. More by accident than design in its conception, we’ve come up with a proposition that is gaining a lot of traction in our wider business network.
Today is an exciting day for us at Nimble as we welcome not 1 but 2 new Nimblers to our team.
We're excited to announce that we've partnered up with the nation's favourite bookie William Hill to assist them in transforming the way the company operates in terms of innovation, product focus and more effective ways of working.
Wow it’s been a race to the finish this year. Although I’m sure I’ll be a physical wreck once the adrenalines gone and I can’t wait to spend time with loved ones, 2017 has been so fulfilling for growing Nimble and we don’t want it to end!
