How would you define innovation in a business context? For some, it’s about incremental change – your products and services getting better with each new iteration. For others, it’s about taking big bets – charting unknown territories that might…
I am sure that everyone who is reading this blog has worked hard and had some failures along the way, for all of us those mistakes became learning experiences. So we were able to take those learnings and make adjustments to our future ideas, meaning…
Recently, I took a course in DSDM, an agile project delivery framework. Whether you’ve taken the course yourself, or if you’re thinking about booking it, here are some of my thoughts after having completed my training.

We have a £2,000 annual training budget at Red Badger that can be used however we like. Most people use it to travel to attend a conference in the US, Asia-Pacific or somewhere equally exciting. Training is really specific to your job role and…
Typically on most Agile projects, the success (or failure) of a project can heavily depend on how good (or bad) the product owner is and how committed they are. Good Agile teams that consistently deliver the right thing at the right time, and with…
