25 Nov 2016
Jamming sessions have been a hit amongst the musicians since… forever. But with the emergence of tech-revolutionaries, this trend is slowly changing. Steve Jobs for example, understood the importance of TechJams. As a suggested design style for the Pixar building, Jobs focused on having a large open space to facilitate accidental encounters and random conversations – in short, a jam session at the workspace 24/7!
Tech Jam sessions have now become more commonplace. They’ve made inroads into every sector, and technology is no exception. One of the fields to have been positively affected by this innovation is the mobile payment ecosystem. How? Take for example Wibmo – a leader in mobile payments and eCommerce security in India. The company recently introduced ‘one-click payment’ that makes mobile card payments a single-step, convenient experience.
If you’re wondering how Wibmo has been able to innovate and think out-of- the-box, we have the answer – Tech Jams. These hour-long sessions are conducted every week and feature people from different functions and roles, addressing roadblocks and extrapolating tech-related information. Designed to foster novel insights and accelerate learning, among other things, there’s no doubt why they started trending in the first place.
