The third episode of the George Podcast features Head of User Interactions Wolfgang Hacker, who played a central part in bringing agile collaboration methods to the George environment.

Designers, Backend Developers, Product Owners and Scrum Masters were added to a new set-up, which enabled the George team to handle all requests and requirements the agile way.
