Diginomica - Episode #45 - a two-for as Den catches up on the week’s news

March 13, 2019

Apologies for missing yesterday's show. I have a good reason - and it was not 'the dog ate my homework' - tune in to find out what happened. 

On today's show, we have ECM revista, two important pieces about International Women's Day, apprenticeships, spend management and taxis. 

My favorite quote from one of the stories:

I hate the dogma behind modern methodologies. Of course we use Agile but we also use Waterfall. We are “experience led and product centric” with rapid feature iteration, but we also run traditional projects. The question is always, are we improving the customer (passenger and driver) experience and can we do it better and faster? And, by the way, Agile is not always about fast.

Amen brother, amen!
