Modern working means being creative!

We at edding are convinced: Modern and efficient working is becoming increasingly important in our fast-paced world. To fully exploit our potential, we need an environment that nurtures us, inspires and in which we feel comfortable.

The time has come: Redefining the perception of work.

What is behind the trend term "New Work" and what does it mean for the individual?

What is "New Work" anyway?

New Work describes the effort to change the classic working life. The simple meritocracy is to be a thing of the past. Instead, New Work puts the questions about the meaning of the work front center. How do we want to work? What do we want to work?

As much as the answers to these questions were mostly overshadowed by pure work pressure in the past, today in our complex and dynamic society, we need new perspectives to effectively integrate work into everyday life. For this purpose, New Work builds on structures such as co-working that offer free space for exchange and collaboration.

Alongside the freedom of the employee, digitisation and globalisation are at the center of the New Work movement. The result: More decentralised work, more home office, more independence for the individual employee. New Work relies on self-initiative - and products by edding help to present and to structure the results of motivated and independent work.

"New Work" - take the first step correctly

"New work sounds great, but how do we get there?" might be the thought of some who hear about this movement for the first time. The question of how to best approach this change in the world of work arises indeed.

It is not uncommon to propagate only those aspects of the New Work that the company sees as fitting for itself. By establishing informal culture and home office the working environment is supposed to become relaxed, but the classic decision-making hierarchies remain in place and have a paralyzing effect on everyday work. Important elements are missing that make the working environment more satisfying and more efficient.

New Work does not see itself as a program that complements existing structures, but as a holistic, independent culture and attitude. Decisive for its success is the willingness to get involved in the transformation at all levels. This also means leaving the role of the raging dictation distributor behind and seeing yourself more as a motivating coach.

Agile working simply explained

Agile working describes a work structure and culture that is based on very concrete pillars. First, it is crucial that all employees work on the projects voluntarily. Their goals should also be clearly defined before the start of work.

The project work itself is based on the Scrum principle and takes place in so-called “sprints”. Between the sprints, the team consults with the customer. The team should be kept as small as possible and act in a self-organized manner. Different roles within the group serve to divide tasks and regularly check the tasks for priority and value.
In the following we present some aspects of the agile development method "Scrum"

Product backlog

A list that contains the requirements of the project. These are sorted by priority and checked for their workload.

Sprint planning

A type of meeting in the Scrum process. The team plans the upcoming sprints according to the Product Backlog here and determines how and in what time frame the tasks are done.

Sprint backlog

This list follows the "product backlog". It lists all tasks that must be implemented in the sprints in order to meet the requirements of the "product backlog".
