This year the developers, QAs, Product Owners, and Architects at Unleashed Software have undertaken an Innovation Sprint. This is a two-week period where our team focus on developing exciting and innovative projects. Aside from the business-focused outcomes, our goals for this year’s Innovation Sprint are:
- Personally contribute to the future product vision
- Strengthen relationships across teams
- Provide a future-forward environment for our engineering team to experiment with cutting-edge technology
This year, the team are focused on two themes that we believe will propel our development into an exciting future:
- Business Intelligence, Analytics and Machine Learning
- Internal efficiency
Preparing and presenting
Leading up to the Innovation Sprint, we collated over 60 ideas and distilled them down to 20 viable ideas. From here, the teams will self-organise and work on bringing one of these ideas to life during the sprint. The goal is to either deliver a functional prototype or validation and proof of concept for the idea.
At the end of the Innovation Sprint, the team will get together to showcase the projects they’ve been working on with the rest of the company. They might not be ready to release into Unleashed straight away, but the learning outcomes will springboard Unleashed to greater heights!
Stay tuned to find out more about the outcomes of our Innovation Sprint.
