The Culture Chat Podcast: How Mastery Can Boost Innovation in the Workplace

June 11, 2017
Maddie Grant

In this episode, we chat with Marc Lamik, Head of Innovation and Partnerships at Zalando, a European retailer making a big splash with their culture practice of Radical Agility, comprised of Purpose, Mastery and Autonomy. In this fascinating conversation, we dig into the specifics of Mastery and what that means for fostering innovation.

Mastery

By outlining Mastery as a foundational pillar, we want to give our developers the best support we can to help them grow, and to provide a place where they’re able to achieve greatness. By allowing dedicated work hours to plan and curate their own Tour of Mastery, we believe Zalando engineers will be inspired every day to do what they do best, both for the business and their future careers. This is the basis for the how behind what we’re doing.
