Getting insights from the ABSL Summit

For years the majority of Objectivity’s growth was organic. I am confident that so far, we have done a pretty good job looking at our people, clients, projects and GPTW results. However, there is about 700 of us today and we are not living in a vacuum. The world is changing fast and there are […]

Business Analyst – a Navy Seals leader without a gun

Ar Ramadi, Iraq – the city where many serious battles took place during the American occupation in 2003-2005. At that time, I was still a university student, but on the site,  there was Jocko Willink and Leif Babin, who were the officers of Navy Seals.

Background: Our client is one of the worldwide leading […]

IT systems design in the eyes of a PM

And while presenting the first (or another) version of the project, it turned out that the Client had seen it differently? Or maybe you have taken part in a project having no […]

Privacy is Value

This January it is particularly important as it’s been over half a year since the GDPR has been applied in Europe. Therefore, it is a perfect moment […]

Why did we get certificates?

Certificates, when acquired, are a thing to be proud of. At the end, we have a token that says we have a certain competency. We can hang it on a wall or on a company’s website and… That’s it? Is this all certificates are for? If so, then why get them? Why not focus just […]
