Making a difference
Another colleague in my team has recently launched a new Power app that has dramatically reduced the time it takes to complete a complex assessment form. Intuitive logic has been built into the app so that you only have to answer questions that relate to your own process, rather than answering loads of questions that don’t relate at all. It’s saving each person who completes it 30 minutes each time and it’s saving the team who manage them 1,500 hours a year.
It is an absolute game changer and something we feel really proud of as a team, because we’re making a difference to people and the way things are done across the business. The value that Power Platform brings is incredible, especially in moving to faster, more agile ways of working.
Learning and culture change
My team and I are hungry to learn; I would say that’s been a big cultural shift for us because now we’re in the mindset and habit of always learning. We access the free learning available in the Group, as well as through YouTube, Google and elsewhere. And it’s so important to me to be able to share that learning with others. I can relate to a lot of people because a year or two ago, I didn’t know any of this stuff either, and so I want to make it accessible to other people like me.
I think it’s all about being bold and challenging the way we’ve always done things – getting stuck in and being curious. Work through what works, what doesn’t, fail fast, learn from it, and move on. It's amazing what can be achieved when we work together and are bold!
