By Nick Butler in Other on December 18, 2017
Boost News is our fortnightly email newsletter. It’s our way of sharing what we’ve learnt as Agile coaches and trainers, as web and app developers, and as a freedom-centred workplace.
Boost News offers Agile tools and tips, case studies on developing digital tools that get you closer to your customers, ideas for making your organisation work better, upcoming events, and anything else we think will help you make a difference. Plus you’ll get the latest on what’s happening here at Boost HQ.
If you want to learn more about anything covered in the newsletter, or you have feedback or suggestions, please contact us.

Find out how collaboration can turn your team into stars. There’s a range of practical tools, tips and demos. There’s also a case study on how organisations can unite their digital resources when they decide to join together.
