What’s it about?

What happens when you go full agile and lean – with all of the company, not just the IT department? Wonderful things! When we started out with Scrum in 2010, all we wanted was to deploy updates more often than every few months. Nowadays we deliver new value to our customers (aka go live) more than 20 times a day and that’s just the tip of the iceberg of what’s changed.

The book presents 24 Work Hacks that make us faster, better and happier. Besides proven agile methods like such as stand-ups and retrospectives, there are innovative, custom solutions:

  • Open Friday – An Open Space every 2 weeks that allows us to distribute know-how and solve problems
  • Peer Recruiting – At sipgate, teams hire new colleagues, not bosses
  • Peer Feedback – Bosses don’t give feedback either. Colleagues give each other meaningful feedback and ideas on how to grow
  • Transparent Numbers – Every employee can get any relevant number with one click: How much revenue does a product generate? Have we lost or gained customers?
  • … and many more …


Tim Mois is one of the founders of sipgate. He is lean and agile with all his heart.

Corinna Baldauf works at sipgate and can’t stop thinking about agile and lean topics. She’s the creator of Retromat.

Oliver Tjaden took all photographs in this book in our offices in Düsseldorf.
