Boost. The power of positive impact

19 November 2019

Delivering benefits day after day

In this issue we look at:

  • How to maximise your impact as a product owner
  • Agile training for delivering working solutions early and often
  • Celebrating the benefits that SuperGold is bringing seniors
  • Getting inspired by conferences
Checking out Boost's Guide to being a Kick-ass Product Owner.

Product owner guide racks up 1000 downloads

Another of our resources has hit a satisfying milestone, with the Guide to being a Kick-ass Product Owner reaching a thousand downloads.

The guide is designed to help you maximise the value you deliver for your customers and your organisation as a whole. It’s great to know we’re helping so many people crank up their careers in the relatively new world of product management.

Agile training to ensure you deliver, day after day

The Agile approach was key to the success of the DigitalNZ cloud migration. Do you have a high-stakes initiative that you just have to deliver? Or are you simply looking to ensure you make a difference week after week?

Our two-day Agile Professional Foundation sets you up to make the move to Agile. With the Agile mindset comes a constant focus on delivering working solutions, and doing so early and often.

Learn the skills you need to deliver day after day in an entertaining and interactive ICAgile-certified course. The next session runs on 24–25 February.

Nick, Eddie, Tracey Martin and Ollie celebrate SuperGold at the Beehive.

Celebrating SuperGold with Minister Martin

Nick, Eddie and Ollie from the SuperGold team got a buzz out of visiting the Beehive recently. The team were invited to celebrate the success of the SuperGold website and app with Seniors Minister Tracey Martin.

SuperGold makes it easy for seniors to get deals and discounts so they can stretch their money further, and it’s been a super rewarding project to work on.

Capital conferences

As you read this, James and Nick will be at the National Digital Forum, catching up with our lovely GLAM clients and learning about the latest ways we can bring our cultural heritage to life in a digital world. 

If you’re going, make sure you come and say hi, and help yourselves to a free ice cream or three on Boost.

Earlier in the month, the Boost office was a ghost town, with most of the team soaking up the goodness at a couple of conferences held here in Welly.

The Boost devs descended en masse on Kiwi Ruby conference at Te Papa.

Big props to our very own Katherine, and all her colleagues, for putting on a most excellent event.
