Summer Interns 2018!

Bright and early at 9.30am, the 5 of us arrived at Titansoft, ready for our first day of internship. We were welcomed by our friendly HR colleagues, Sky and Jessie, who tapped us in to a quiet office and explained Titansoft’s unique flexi working hours where Titaners get to plan their own work schedule, as long as work gets done!

As interns, we received a brief orientation where we played some ice-breaking games to learn more about each other and Titansoft. For Summer 2018, we have 4 Software Developer (SD) Interns and 1 HR Intern (who says operational role interns are not welcomed in a tech company!)

Global Scrum Gathering 2017 Singapore

The Global Scrum Gathering Singapore 2017 was organized by the Scrum Alliance and was held on 17 – 19 July 2017. We here at Titansoft are very passionate about supporting the local Agile community. In addition, we are extremely thankful to the local Agile community in our journey to become the Best Tech Company to Work For in Singapore 2017.

Thus, it only became natural for us to be the gold sponsor for this event to show our appreciation.

We did the Polls… again!

Similar to what we did at the Agile Conference 2016, we decided to consult the community for a few questions that we have had as well as help the community out by getting responses for their posted questions.

Not a Team but a Self-Organising Team

We need to realise that although many groups are called “teams”, not every work group is a team. In Titansoft, through the adoption of the Agile mindset, our people work in self-organising teams to make their own commitments, organise and assign their own work. Working together, our people craft appropriate strategies to accomplish their goals, and make decisions with (again bounded) economic and organisational impact, producing a product or service that is valuable to the organisation and to our customers. But one should know that despite being in a self-organising team, they are not out there on their own, disconnected from the organisation. Continue reading “Not a Team but a Self-Organising Team”
