Most digital agencies are looking for ways to not only stay relevant in the marketplace but also to inspire their teams to take risks and innovate. Recently we held an internal “Hackathon” to explore what would happen when let staff run a bit wild with their imagination and skills.
The outcome was geekily glorious.
I sat down with Jared Schwartz, our VP of strategic innovation, and Thomas Taylor, the software engineer who organized the event, to learn more about what happened during those two days.
It’s true that you can learn a lot from watching others work. As approach, process and habits vary, we can often pick up something new, or a more effective way of doing by just observing. We’re exposed to things that can profoundly affect our own work, make us more efficient and/or capable of better work product.
