The Nordstrom Innovation Lab

At the Nordstrom Innovation Lab, a new team is applying agile and lean startup techniques to move quickly from conception to deployment. The team is acting like a startup within a large organization. They work in a collaborative open workspace and go through several iterations using frequent customer feedback loops to plan out their next iteration. They keep their planning simple and light-weight by using sticky notes and index cards and following agile engineering practices like pairing and test-driven development. Watch this team in action below.
