About this Case Study

Agile is a team sport. The ups and downs of hiring a user focused, multi-disciplinary, agile product* team and then creating a culture that makes them want to stay. In the most unlikely of places.

*sorry for the buzzword bingo!

About the Speaker

The majority of Matt's 15-year career has been spent managing digital teams for government and research institutions. 

Throughout those 15 years, he has operated at the forefront of internet-enabled change for his employers.

Since 2001 he has successfully introduced content management systems, corporate social media beyond broadcast, commitment to open source technologies - and in recent years, an agile, DevOps approach to product development. In the majority of cases this was achieved, despite organisational inertia and risk aversion.
