We believe in opening up the way we do business as much as we believe in open sourcing software, and these blogs share our ideas, tools and experiences...
This blog post addresses the most important thing that I learned whilst attending my first agile conference - the "muda, mura, muri" concept
Wunderkraut Germany is happy to announce the opening of its new Berlin office. With this new office we strengthen our position in the important government and media markets and expand our geographical reach to northern Germany.
We want to change the way large web projects are done. Every year we see many projects with excellent procurement practices. At the same time, the majority of procurements we see could use at least some improvement. Bad procurement is not only bad for vendors, it's also really bad for the customers. Fixing the procurement process is the first part in succeeding in a large web project.
Scuba diving and large software projects don't have much in common, I just happen to have plenty of professional experience in both. I've been diving for almost twenty years, been a PADI instructor for more than ten years, using agile methodologies for almost as long and have been teaching agile for almost five years. This got me thinking that scrummasters are actually quite a bit like divemasters.
We've taken part in some really great procurement processes in Wunderkraut. We've also seen a lot of truly horrible ones. On a personal level I used to help customers in IT project procurement and management before founding Wunderkraut. It seems we could have a lot to share with the entire industry, so we've decided to write a booklet on how to do successful procurement of web projects.
We experimented with the ignite format in one of our sessions at DrupalCon Prague. With 12 presenters and 160 slides in one hour Wunderkrauts talk about number of interesting, fun and personal topics.
We are proud to announce the latest Wunderkraut country, Estonia. The leading professional services provider for Drupal in Estonia, Mekaia, is joining forces with Wunderkraut. We already have a long history of working together in customer projects and based on our positive experiences it would be great for both parties to come together.
One year ago we announced the creation of Wunderkraut by bringing together four leading European professional services providers for Drupal. Our goal was to create an international, business focused and professional company that can serve very large customers all over Europe. It's been a really interesting, challenging and rewarding year.
