Co-located teams don’t always win

Listening to many agile trainers and coaches, I tend to hear the same thing over and over again…

“Agile teams needs to be co-located in order to succeed…”

Is Scrum dead?

As an agile coach and consultant I have heard most things around over the years when it comes to the “right” approach to implementing “agile” into organisations or teams. “Start with Scrum” is probably the most used one — also mentioned by me I suppose a number of times. However, this has started to sound a bit squeaky in my ears lately. In the beginning I couldn’t really put my finger on why it annoyed me so much. What’s not to like about Scrum if you want to take your organisation or team into agility? You have short iterations, low time-to-market cycles, reduced number of meetings and your development cycle is closer connected with your core business. Looking in retrospect on what I’ve learned over the years, I think I finally found my answer.

Q1 2017 - New year = new technologies

What lies beyond "just Drupal"?

Late last year we blogged about the SystemSeed company trip to Minsk in order to work, bond and be merry. Each were achieved in equal degrees and we came away with revitalised enthusiasm for our work and a shift in what exactly that work would contain.

I’m happy to announce today a turning point at SystemSeed where we will begin to offer service beyond solely Drupal development. For the past 7 years+ we have branded ourselves as Drupal Enthusiasts™ but times change and we must all keep up, not with trends but an ever-moving landscape.

Why We Pay our Drupalers to Relocate to their Dream Destination

A special note:

SystemSeed, a multinational Drupal agency is once again growing! Because this role is so critical to the team, we would like to leave no stone unturned. Also, because every one of our team members is critical to the success of the team as a whole, we are doing something different.

At SystemSeed, we have always been a completely distributed team - enabling our teammates to do their best work from anywhere in the world. We’ve found that sort of flexibility helps people explore their ambitions, whether that be career development, personal development, or simply seeing the world without letting their “job” get in the way.

The New Leadership Competency = Character Filtering

You may have heard the saying, “Surround yourself with the best people you can find.” It’s a quote from President Reagan in 1986, which is fairly intuitive until you dissect those words. Having founded and co-founded a few businesses, I find myself constantly challenging the idea of who the best are that I can surround myself with as our teams take on real business needs.

As I sit back and evaluate those individuals I have surrounded myself with in the past, the one constant with those who I consider “the best” is high character. It may seem like a no-brainer to insinuate that high character is important, but unfortunately many don’t seem to put as much weight on character as they do other measuring sticks. Give me a high character, hard-working teammate who is eager to learn and wants to create value all day long. You’d be surprised how few and far between these types of individuals are. When you find them, you fight for them.
