I have had the opportunity to work in the SAP Customer Experience (CX) Labs as a User Experience Designer. It is very exciting to be a part of team discussions on various innovative topics. The knowledge sharing culture fosters an environment for innovation and inspires others within the team to think out of the box.
Importance of company culture:
Culture: the ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a particular people or society.
Company culture is a vital aspect of any organisation, for motivating employees to work, to hire the right talent and retain it and for more productivity and innovation. Winning companies are at the forefront of innovation and always on the edge of something bigger.
Empowering employees to share knowledge easily and effectively with each other fosters a giving and innovative culture.
An example of knowledge sharing is the online channel of our team where everyone shares articles of their interest. Just being involved in these channels has been a learning curve for me personally. I got exposed to newer topics of innovation which are out there in the world.
I have selected my top ten favourite articles and blogs on topics which I found interesting and relevant to the CX team. These posts are shared by technology strategists and enthusiasts, and designers from the team. The main topics of interest here are Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Human-Machine Interaction, Game Design, and Software Construction.
Hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did and learn something new today. Here is a quick glimpse into some exciting articles.
The innovation culture requires people in a team to collaborate, share ideas and knowledge within the team and enhance innovation through this exchange. Team members then give their opinions on this and share their thoughts to discuss and come up with newer ideas. Sometimes people with similar ideas get together to discuss further and think of possibilities of solutions. If they see potential in a certain topic, they take it forward to dig deeper into research in that field of interest. Sometimes this research results into a potential prototype. The labs team has worked on similar topics and these prototypes could be found here – https://cxlabs.sap.com/prototype/.
The aim here was to include you in the knowledge sharing discussions of our labs team, by sharing these refreshing articles on a wide range of topics.
Often times it all starts with a conversation.
