Recipe to Innovate – Creating a Culture Supporting Innovation
We have created a successful, repeatable program that gives product makers the freedom and autonomy to work on projects that are impactful and provide them the most energy.  Rather you call it a Code Jam, Hackathon, or Innovation Days, there are key components to creating an environment in your organization that will allow innovation to flourish.  Through these components, your teams can build a community where they can innovate where they are most passionate, learn new skills, create products and features that are most valuable to customers, and build a sense of community.

DevOps ICU: (Correctly) Integrating UX, Product Design and Agile
Agile methodologies lack the details of how UX fits into software dev projects. Some suggest that a Product Manager describing features is enough for developers, UX should train others to do their specialized jobs, or excluding UX experts solves them being “too siloed” and “not collaborative.” This happens with no other role in software dev; it’s hurting culture, efficiency, and productivity, and creating poor products for customers.
Your customer only sees your UX, not 1000 developers or if you were Agile or Lean. Companies are figuring out that UX specialists and the User-Centered Design process are good investments that more than pay for themselves. Recent highly-publicized UX failures remind us that skimping on the UX process can alienate customers, create negative media attention, and burn millions of dollars.
Learn how the UX process fits into Lean and Agile; augments software dev goals; increases customer satisfaction; and saves time, money, and sanity before developers write a line of code.
