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.

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.
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!
By now most workplaces around the UK are winding down, code freezing or already finished for Christmas. With that in mind, we thought it apt to share our reflections on 2016 from a Nimble perspective.
So.... just short of a year and I'm leaving the Home Office. It's been a really fun, challenging and incredibly productive journey, growing a start up from scratch in the Public Sector.
