Being a team manager is quite a challenge nowadays as your team is usually a bunch of people with different personality traits, different life experience, different needs, priorities and often a different attitude to life. And what is more important, being a manager means being cautious enough to make these people work effectively together, and being careful enough not to omit the moment of potential crisis that would not be able to be undone anymore.

Creativity in quarantine?

Creativity in quarantine?

design graphic inspiration isolation

Today during the pandemic times, the times of social distancing, proper 30 sec washing hands, times of sanitisers, masks, gloves and quarantine we all seem to feel isolated and lose our creative vibes. I don’t want to divide people here on creatives and non-creatives. I believe that every profession requires creativity and every person is creative in their own unique way. Creativity is an inspiration drawn from the outer world, from people we meet, from conversations we conduct and things we see and experience.

MVP design UX UI cooperation

Undertaking a brand new idea and turning it into a successful product is always thrilling but also risky. In order to create a successful and meaningful project it is essential first to build Minimum Viable Product (MVP) to see if we are on the right track and if our strategy is going in the right direction. That is why, building MVP gives us an advantage, as it helps define all possible pitfalls, eliminates gaps in a wholesome product in future, or even helps to understand if our approach should be changed completely already on the early stage of the project.

Agile project management JIRA communication

Agile stands for building relationships- within the team, with the client. It even advocates working in one room, cooperating closely. But what if our beloved team member decides to move to Sri Lanka? Or the client found the perfect team for the project, just it happens to be situated three time-zones away? Should we give up? Should we just do something that doesn’t care about closeness, like the waterfall then (please don’t)?

JIRA project management Scrum Kanban

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a well organised company which runs multiple projects, must be in want of an issue tracking solution. At Bright Inventions we value effective solutions so a choice of the issue tracking tool was an important one.

That’s how we decided to use Jira.
