Opening Silos in Big Brilliant Corporations Part 1

Nikos Tsouknidas, 07/12/17

Nikos Tsouknidas from the BBC's GEL (Global Experience Language) team tells us about how the BBC is reinventing itself into a culture of embracing constant change and how they're helping open the silos between teams.

It’s almost comedic how fast web technologies change today. We always seem to be chasing the next new great (or cool) thing, and in some ways this isn’t always a forward movement but more of a spiral.

Technology doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes. In any big organisation like the BBC, the challenges of moving to a new standard are usually not technical – they involve many people, sharing, communication, and—as always in engineering—compromise, and Nikos tells us how they’re doing it.
