I saw this idea posted by Daniel Pink and I couldn’t help but connect it to the term “hacker.” Obviously, the date to submit a new name for this event (don’t say FedEx) has passed but that doesn’t mean the opportunity for your business to have it’s own Hack Day has passed as well.
Maybe you’re not Facebook with Hackathons. Maybe you’re not Atlassian with
FedEx Days. But, you are YOU and you have a talented group of coworkers who are bound to have some ideas to share. Have you asked them? Are you willing to dedicate a full 24 hours for them to work on whatever they want and report back to their colleagues?
I can only imagine the possibilities if every organization had their own dedicated time to hack.
