Foration was set up with the mission of challenging what IT can do for business. To help us deliver this mission, we set up a company-wide initiative known as 'Labs'.
What happens in Labs?
Every fortnight, each member of the team takes half a day to investigate new developments in IT. The aim is to develop new systems, processes or technologies that could benefit us or our clients.
The team has 3 months to work on their projects, after which their ideas are refined and any relevant findings passed on to our clients.
Many of Foration’s most significant leaps have been a direct result of the work performed in a Labs project.
The Labs process is simple.
Step 1 A member of the team identifies a topic and presents it to the rest of the team for endorsement.
Step 2 Through collaborative teamwork, the idea is developed, examined and put forward for approval.
Step 3 Once approved, the idea is worked on for a period of 3 months, with regular updates to the team.
Step 4 On completion, the findings are presented and passed through a series of quality checks to ascertain how effective they will be.
Step 5 Projects approved for implementation undergo the necessary steps for incorporation within Foration's service range.
