OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES

SEE THE BIG PICTURE

Whatever you do at Visual Meta, you have to keep our three customers in mind: Bots, Shops & Users. We need to balance the different needs of those customers in order to be successful. Even when that means, that we miss out on certain opportunities for one of them.

FOCUS ON IMPACT

To have an impact, you have to focus on the things that really make a difference. Therefore, you need to ask yourself every day if the tasks you are working on are the ones that really help us to achieve our goals.

PROVE YOUR POINT

If you want to improve something, gather facts and figures to back up your arguments. Seek supporters and pitch your case.

GET THINGS DONE

In order to get things done, you need to follow through with what you started. Sometimes getting small things done is better than big things not done.

WORK HARD, ENJOY LIFE

While in the office, work hard on what is on your agenda and make the most of your time. Once that is accomplished, go home and enjoy life.

PLAY FOR THE TEAM

In order to be successful as a team, you need to put the interest of the team before your own and treat others like you want to be treated.

DON´T BE AFRAID TO FAIL

If you want to get ahead, you have to try out new things and take calculated risks. Failure is valuable as long as it helps you to get better.

Why organisations need agile coaches and scrum masters?

February 14, 2020
Have you ever wandered why agile coaches and scrum masters are so wanted nowadays? We asked our agile coach Anca Trif to give us 3 good reasons for a company to hire an agile coach. 💡 Here’s what she told us: 1. An agile coach will help an organisation better understand how to adapt to the present market conditions and how to stay focused on understanding and meeting customer needs. 2. An agile coach will help break communication barriers between departments and identify their common interests and common pain points, and develop solutions to the latter. 3. An agile coach will mentor, teach and train teams and individuals in agile values and frameworks (like Scrum or Kanban). We also wanted to know 3 good reasons why teams need scrum master. 💡 Here’s what we found out: 1. A scrum master will identify the way in which teams can synchronize with the vision and mission of the whole organisation, become more focused and more experimental and deliver more value for the customer in a shorter amount of time. 2. A scrum master will guide teams to discover the best practices for their own work. 3. A scrum master will address impediments that affect the performance of teams at the system level. Sounds convincing? To us as well. That is why we are hiring!

Are OKRs really worth the hassle?

January 30, 2020
We’ve asked Saskia Weigand, our People Director at Visual Meta, what’s her standpoint when it comes to including OKRs in the company everyday life and culture. Check her answers below! 💡 What is the most important thing to consider if you want to implement OKRs in your company? 💬 “I think it is important to be clear about the goals of this decision and to share them transparently with all those involved. What do we want to achieve? What does this target system improve? Why is it worth establishing a new system? A transparent communication through the ups and downs of the implementation phase is critical to success.” What was the biggest VM improvement due to OKRs? 💬 “We broke down silos, started to talk to each other cross functionally and are aiming for common goals which are important for company success.” At the end, are OKRs really worth the hassle? 💬 “Definitely yes! Classical target systems usually do not foster collaboration and are highly inflexible since they are not adapted in short iterations to the changing requirements of the market. OKRs help the company to react in an agile way and be sustainably successful – that is why it is worth the hassle.” Our most recent employee OKR survey confirms what our Director says: 92% of all Visual Metans that took part in the survey know the company OKRs, and 93% think they make sense, while 68% agree that the cross-departmental alignment improved the way we work across teams. #okrs #management #agilemindset #FocusOnImpact #ThisIsVM
