First FedEx Day at Ambientia

Lately I have been pondering a lot about human motivation and the difficulty of being enthusiastic about work. As you all must know when you are grinding a project, you must do the sprint and nothing else. But what happens if you just know that you would have a great idea for something related but not allowed by the sprint scope? Normally it is quite difficult to squeeze it in to the sprint. Then the team and the client start a new sprint and your interesting stuff is out again… So what happens? People do the interesting stuff during their free time or the ideas will not happen at all.

I have modeled Atlassian for many of their methods and products. That is one of the reasons why Ambientia partnered with Atlassian in the first place. I have also modeled some of Mike’s ideas about management. Today we are combining the ideas. We will start our very first FedEx Day here at Ambientia! For now it will be just a six month experiment with one team but it is a start.

Ok, I am a pointy-haired boss nowadays but a distant hacker in me is knocking. So, I am also eager and full of interest to see what our guys can do in 24 hours of flow and blatant hacking during the FedEx Day…
