How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The trick to empowering creativity is encouraging frequent communication and iteration. Embrace behaviors, not platitudes, that remind the team there is no such thing as failure. Embed creativity and make it more than a tagline. Show that nothing is unsalvageable; focus on ‘why’ things occurred, and make everything a learning opportunity.

Brian

Manager, User Experience Research

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We are able to influence how content is delivered and monetized by global businesses in 2 ways. Acquia's founder created Drupal, the leading open source CMS in the world and we are proud of our close relationship with the Drupal community. We have also pivoted towards DXP capabilities and offer a full suite of solutions to our customers.
