Creating a vision

It all starts with a vision. Often business-as-usual includes putting out fires, making sure the small things are happening, and meeting short-term targets. For an organisation to truly be disruptive, it needs an overarching vision of where it wants to be – no matter how ambitious it might be. Without an ambitious vision, organisations tend to wither away over time. Let’s explore the facets that can guide defining a vision...

Technology teams, departments and industry still hold a reputation for failed projects, where customers and product owners spend too much for too little, or where results pale in comparison to expectations held. We hear about these unmet expectations all the time, followed by budgets blown on project extensions and scope changes. We also hear about customers who “don’t know what they want”, or who “keep changing their minds”. Sound familiar?...

President Barack Obama asked in his State of the Union address that “we live in a time of extraordinary change, change that’s affecting the way we live and the way we work. New technology replaces any job where work can be automated. Workers need more skills to get ahead. These changes aren’t new, and they’re only going to accelerate.

Friday, October 25, 2019
Supplied by Administrator from entelect2013
Developed by Google Ventures, a Design Sprint is a five-day process for answering critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with customers or stakeholders. While Design Sprints are great for validating ideas and solving big challenges, they don’t always work. Getting people to clear their schedules for a week is already challenging, even more so when that week results in wasted efforts...

Supplied by entelect2013 Administrator from entelect2013
DevOps is a cultural shift. It’s not a matter of simply adopting agile planning or continuous delivery, although those practices are certainly important.

Initiatives

 

Entelect Challenge

One of the many amazing initiatives run by Entelect is the Entelect Challenge. For a number of years now, the Entelect Challenge has been South Africa’s premier coding competition. The idea was started by our staff who wanted to drive community engagement through a little competition. Little did we know that this challenge would become so huge. Years later, it is a national event with a total prize value over R200k, and still going strong.

 

The objective of the Entelect Challenge is for entrants to compete against each other by writing an AI program that can creatively and strategically outsmart and out-survive their opponents.

 

Back at the ranch, a team of Entelect employees run the whole show; developing the creative idea, launching it to the public, developing the player portal and forums, running the play-offs and hosting the final event at rAge. We’re always looking for new contributions and new ideas, so get involved!

 

DevDay

We host our own conference called DevDay which is organised, presented and attended by our people. DevDay is a fun day out of the office where the technologist, inventor, hobbyist, engineer or artist in you can come to the fore. The event is part showcase, part science show, part geek club, part makers club; offering a range of lightning talks on cutting-edge technologies as well as a variety of interactive exhibition stands where people can discover the latest creative innovations in technology.
