Agile structure: the lighter, the better
We’ve always been allergic to bureaucracy and hierarchy (and it’s getting worse). That’s why we stand for equality and diversity within an Agile structure.
We think that in the finance world there’s a lot of innovation to do regarding how to get things done. So we try to practice what we preach:
- Flat organisation. It is much more flexible and open to change than age-old hierarchy.
- Autonomous teams. Every small team is in charge of a project. The members of these multidisciplinary teams must be able to make decisions, solve problems and deliver results on time. A team is like an organ that fulfills a function. Communication with other organs is thus needed to keep the whole organism healthy and working.
- Agile methodologies. Collaborative thinking, quick production, quality assurance, testing. And back to the start. We’ve been using Scrum for a while, but only when it’s the best option. Sometimes Kanban suits us better. And we are increasingly attracted by Design Thinking. The point is to use these tools because they help, not because they’re trendy.
- Maximum freedom, maximum responsibility. Once they know their objectives, that’s all people and teams need to do their jobs.
