Motivating Teams for the New Year: A Snapshot of the Meetup Talks

17-Jan-2017 17:48:06 Agile teams Meetup Events staff motivation

 

A New Year arises, we’re back to work, and have deliberated a dry January - but it’s not all doom and gloom. The cold weather and train strikes could not prevent a mass of like-minded people from attending our first ‘Stand Up and Talk Agile’ Open mic meetup of 2017.

Carrying on with the success from previous meetups, we kick-started the session with one open mic slot, and were dazzled in exchange with a generous selection of four thought-provoking talks. Loosely focused around motivating teams, each talk brought new insights that naturally fuelled further discussions and learning.

Nevil Wharton, our very welcoming host for the evening at the Hiscox venue, was first to take to the stage. He discussed the positive impacts that adopting Agile ways of working has had on his team, and the ripple effect this has had on the organisation. He shared the three key ingredients which led to a truly motivated team.

What We Learned During Our First Agile Open Mic Night

26-Sep-2016 15:35:22 Meetup Agile Events Community

On September 21st, I had the honour to be the host of our first Agile open mic night, held in partnership with HPE.

At Radtac, we think that by being part of a community, we can all share ideas, challenges, and learn from each other. We’re focused on doing whatever we can to support the community and bring our contribution to it. 

That is why it makes perfect sense to us to host an open mic-style Agile Meetup, where people would be encouraged to share ideas within a safe environment of friends and peers, whilst being enabled to grow and shine.

Scrum Gathering Orlando Through The Eyes Of A Live Illustrator

Equipped with my graphic board, pens, sunglasses and shorts I set sail for the Scrum Gathering in Orlando. Having attended two awesome gatherings in the past, the bar was set high - however, I was far from disappointed.

From the offset, co-chairs Anu Smalley and Kate Megaw knocked it out of the park by entering the stage to the sound of 'Starman' by David Bowie, whilst wearing convincing spacesuits complete with helmets. This was their genius way of setting the Gathering’s theme 'Infinity and Beyond: Transforming the World of Work'. With three tracks on offer, ranging from beginner ('Mission Control'), intermediate ('Orbiting the Earth'), to advanced levels ('Agile Galaxy'), there were more than enough sessions to choose from for all 1100 attendees. Let’s not forget that this was the largest Scrum Gathering so far.

This Is How We Celebrate Christmas At Radtac

21-Jan-2016 14:30:00 Radtac team Events

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. It’s the time when we put on Christmas jumpers instead of office apparel, when our office gets a nice festive makeover, and when we all go for mince pies and mulled wine after work. It’s Christmas.

In case you ever wondered, there’s more to our Christmas traditions than the above, and that’s because we have colleagues from different parts of the world. Moreover, our consultants add more to the ‘international Christmas’ each time they travel around the world, observing Christmas traditions in other cultures.

For this festive season, we want to tell you a little more about how we celebrate Christmas around Radtac. We’ve all learnt more about each other’s traditions - now we want to share them with you, hoping you’ll write back to us saying how you celebrate.

The Lean Agile Scotland Conference 2015

02-Nov-2015 13:00:00 Lean Lean Agile Scotland Agile Events

What happens when you are a visual illustrator and you get invited to illustrate the Lean Agile Scotland conference? Well, it’s simple. You clutch your pens and travel north of the border (for the second time) to this prestigious conference to capture key messages from the talks in pictures. This year’s conference spanned over 3 days, with 67 speakers and four tracks of workshops/ presentations, so it was no surprise that the canvas was over 30 feet long.
