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.
We were delighted to be invited by Sheffield Digital for Chris to speak to them about Nimble on their Friday podcast
Ironically, I was agonising over that very question whilst drafting another blog when it hit me, the above question is the blog!
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.
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.
