Product Development – How we use Lego at ELEMENT Insurance to learn more about how we work

One of the questions I love asking people during job interviews is what they consider to be the best thing about their current working process?

The following practice is using Lego bricks to visualise our workstream, getting a reliable and valuable source of data about how we perform as a team.
