Hackweek Events Fuel Greater Creativity in the Workspace
Why time away from the daily grind is actually good for your company
At PSFK 2015, Tim Rodgers of rehabstudio, a creative technology studio, introduces +Hackweek and why the monthly event helps inspire better work. In this video, you’ll learn key take-aways for a successful Hackathon, along will some of the humorous, quirky and worthwhile projects that have been produced as a result of these short-term creative collaborations.
Rodgers begins by mentioning a problem that has affected most creatives—there is an idea in the back of your notebook and chances are it will sit there until someone else mirrors it in real-life. Due to client deadlines, laziness, or pressing schedules, we fail to act upon our potentially great ideas whether it be for personal pleasure or a work project.
