How we follow our principle: WORK AGILE
Updated: Jul 28, 2020
At Digital Chameleon our 4 value principles guide each decision we make, serving as the path we`ll follow to achieve our mission & vision. One of the most important and on the same time challenging value is our principle WORK AGILE.
We want to empower our employees to choose how, where and when they work. We believe that this freedom helps each team member to increase their productivity and responsibility. We want to develop the talent of our employees – and don`t manage it. Therefore, we give everyone the autonomy to deliver their best service. For us, it’s a real win-win situation. As our employees gain more control over the way they work, our organization Digital Chameleon becomes responsive and effective.
Agility not only means a different way of organizing a company, it’s also changing the understanding of leadership. CEO Tanja Rohark is an agile manager by heart. By exemplifying what WORK AGILE really means, she defines a transparent framework and process of how to work in a team with a high level of responsibility and commitment.
Thanks to our state-of-art tools (Apple, Office 365 etc.) the Digital Chameleon Team, based in Switzerland, Spain and Germany is able to work effectively and independently from anywhere. We start our week with an extended team call to kick off the upcoming week together, as one team. Every day we have a 15 minutes Status Huddle, where we discuss all the project related topics. Every two weeks we organize a virtual Team Happy Hour to keep the team spirit high. Monthly we do an interactive Retrospective / Lessons Learned Workshop to find out what worked well and what needs improvement. This AGILE meeting structure helps the team to never lose the focus and always have the main priorities and company goals in their minds.
Clearly, it’s challenging to accommodate this freedom to our clients processes, but from our experience it`s not impossible. We openly communicate to our clients, how we will integrate our WORK AGILE principle to the project - always of course adjusted to the needs and conditions of the specific client.
We believe that maintaining this relentlessly resourceful start-up spirit helps us to ensure our principle to WORK AGILE.
