IGNIS hackathon event: Planning for present and future

April 10, 2015

As a small company, we have limited resources but we can leverage that to our advantage. IGNIS has been practicing to increase the fluidity of tasks between the team members. This will enable us to prepare for our predicted growth.

However, over the past few months, things changed. IGNIS received significant attention from the display industry and has acquired several larger projects.

As part of our new hackathon activities, we put the question in front of our team and asked them to propose various solutions. The question was simple, how to address the significant demands from industry without undermining our partner satisfaction and our own success.

The three randomly selected teams at IGNIS worked together and planed strategy in view of these recent developments. They then presented their plans including their ideas on how to improve our lean operating strategy, the problems that need to be addressed in order to amplify the effect of our engineers and the expansion that is needed to support the programs.

At the end a group was selected as the winner based on their peer scoring. However, the real winner is IGNIS for having such a talented, motivated, and passionate team.

And you will hear way more from them soon!
