Iain BroomePodcast24th July 2018 Download the mp3 file Subscribe in iTunes Subscribe to the RSS feed Time for episode 18 of the Sheffield Digital Podcast in which we interview Chris Roberts, founder of Nimble Approach, a collective of Lean-Agile specialists and another Sheffield success story. We loved hearing Chris talk about how he is doing things a little bit differently. From pop-up squads and culture change to focusing (and sticking to) strong values, Nimble Approach has grown quickly and is doing really rather well. If you are thinking of or just starting a business, you will find the conversation really useful. From about the 14-minute mark, Chris talks about the way Nimble Approach gives its team opportunity to talk about mental health or any other issues they might have. It’s refreshing to hear and again, valuable insight if you are a business owner. As always, the second half of the show is where we cover recent news and info from the city’s digital sector. That includes: a look back at the first Sheffield Digital Annual General Meetup the food feast that’s coming to Kollider later this year an update on Sheffield College’s Software Developer apprenticeship the first get together for dotSHF’s people domain.
