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.
