No, we’re not talking about Brexit, we’re talking about collaborative and open plan workspaces that encourage you to move around the workspace and work where and when you like.

agile whiteboard, how to peel a sticky note -

When we started out creating stationery for scrum professionals, we knew sticky notes were a must but we didn't just want to be yet another brand with more or less the same offering.
