Most companies, big or small, often have a desire to build their own internal products. These can range from task management tools, team feedback software, or even a sculpture made out of excess business cards. Whatever it might be, they usually spark from a team’s desire to try something new. Something that could help them discover more about a tool they’re learning, learn more about the people they work with, or maybe even solve a problem they’ve been dealing with at work. Well, one of our passion projects is BentoBlox. An app inspired by meditation, relaxation, and a love of games.
BentoBlox began as a “hack day” project that over time became fully realized. It took a few weeks of regularly working on it until things just started falling into place and we thought, “Wow, this thing might actually come to fruition.”
At this point we decided to make it official and brought on a project manager to plan our execution by assigning tasks and creating delivery dates, including a soft-launch date.
