Skunkworks with Richie Jones and James Lucas

Our next Transform session is all about the concept of Skunkworks, a term described on Wikipedia to ‘describe a group within an organization given a high degree of autonomy and unhampered by bureaucracy, with the task of working on advanced or secret projects.’ This Transform session puts skunkworks into context and shines a light on its importance for our digital advancement.

Rapid manual testing of high-level assumptions can bring about outstanding innovation with minimal risk. At least, that is what the concept of skunkworks is all about. Join digital experts Richie Jones and James Lucas as they shine a light on this fascinating concept and explain how they apply it in real scenarios with their clients and explain why it is only just getting started.  

Skunkworks will be available to stream from 10am GMT on March 1st 2022 on Webgains Academy.
