These past months have been filled with uncertainty, we have been living a pandemic caused by Covid-19 that has changed our lives and our daily habits; working every day from home, juggling and balancing our work and personal life. Difficult times often bring out the best in people, and this has been no different in Stratio, Stratians has been giving the best version of themselves.
Talent is that word we say several times a day and what companies fight for, particularly those in industries where – unfortunately – it is scarce.
Talent is something one is born with – but also something that one nurtures and grows, especially in the particular case of work environments. Individual talent in a collaborative culture – something which should be the norm in the technology industry – is however in short supply; in fact, it can even be counterproductive.
Last week, we introduced Argos Framework in our blog. It is a frameworkcreated to develop independent products which are integrated into a single final product. It is a framework that, among other things, brings together best practices from other frameworks such as SAFe and Nexus. As it makes use of Scrum and Lean Kanban, it works with different Product Backlogs, giving great importance to the management of interdependencies, providing a very deep refinement, which helps define a transparent and aligned Roadmap, which can generate the greatest possible value for the suite of products.
Stratio is a technology company that was born in 2013 with the aim of creating a product that solves the main challenges faced by a company when implementing a Big Data solution. Stratio is firmly committed to agile frameworks and, right from the start, its hallmark has been the self-organization and multi-disciplinarity of the teams that the Scrum methodology proposes.
Ever felt daunted by a new role? Remember that feeling when you have just started at a new company? As Scrum Master, having started recently at Stratio, a pioneering Big Data company, the feeling is still relatively raw. While pondering how to best fit in, I received a small gift from a friend that got me thinking. It was a small representation of Ganesha. I began researching about this Hindu deity and found some curious information that I would like to share!
