How we built a workflow for an Internet of Things R&D team

I was always really keen on building stuff. First it was with Lego blocks, which we all know from our childhood (I still love to build Lego with my nephew).

Diverse nature of creation

I was always really keen on building stuff. First it was with Lego blocks, which we all know from our childhood (I still love to build Lego with my nephew). Later, it became simple fighting robots that were entered in local contests - a group of friends and I tried to build some extremely amateur electronics and mechanical structures. After years of studying Mechatronics, leading scientific society, working as low-level developer and finally as a project manager, it became pretty clear to me that constructing is not only about screws, wires and lines of code.

Building, or I should rather say creating, has multiple faces and multiple motivations standing behind it. One can build software or a device to make her life easier or present her own skills to the world. Some people focus on building a relationship with others so that are sure to live in perfect balance and symbiosis with society - either in school, at work or in local society. Yet other people love to make the work of others easier as well as build processes and workflows that help improve the quality, comfort and productivity of teams. Lately, we've decided to build everything at once!

The new kind of team

Recently, more and more of our teammates have delved into the topic known as “IoT”. The third wave of the internet, interconnected devices, a smart world… No matter what you call it, it means just about the same and is, indeed, pretty interesting! Following this rush of excitement, we decided to test our forces and build an IoT research team, the very first of its kind in the history of Monterail!

This required us to come up with an idea for how to organize a team’s work so that the team can meet its goals in a short period of time while also create a friendly environment of creative and productive work for team members. And so we did.
