allSTARWARS: The Force Is With Us

Rows of papers lined the wall of the office’s largest conference room, each piece displaying ideas for All Star’s Hack Day, better known as allSTARWARS. Hack Days are an opportunity for cross-collaborative brainstorming where employees come up with ideas of “hacks” that provide business value and meaningful results. When it came to allSTARWARS, there was only one rule:

 

“Do. Or do not. There is no try.” – Yoda

And succeed, they did. The All Star employees started their day strong with endless waffles and toppings.

All Stars picked from over 20 employee-generated ideas to create their teams, each of which would compete for ultimate bragging rights.


Collaborative sessions took place throughout the day to come up with new and innovative ways to apply the team’s idea.


Everyone refueled with some Chipotle for lunch without spilling the beans about their projects.

Teams were encouraged to think outside the box and present ideas that would drive the business forward. As a wise man once said:

“Always in motion is the future.” – Yoda

Even though two tied for first place, all the teams were winners because of their unique ways to empower the business. Now, All Star is set to work on new ways to uplift people’s lives through education. Whether you’re in business or in school, always remember:

 

“Your focus determines your reality.” – Qui-Gon Jinn, Jedi Master
