Welcome back to the Dible Dudes podcast. This week, we have David, Reid, and Nicole, the three co-founders of Digible to dive deep into a conversation that every company should focus on at some point in the lifetime of the business; the vision. In this episode, we talk about what inspired the start of Digible, how the vision evolved over the years, the framework used to develop Digible’s vision, and some of the out-of-the-box strategies Digible uses to build a better work culture and make the world a better place.
Whether in life, or a business venture, it’s a crucial step to figure out the purpose, core values, and what your goals are. We start today’s conversation with a brief review of how the Digible team made their purpose and core values clear and some of the things that inspired the whole business venture. In several of our previous episodes, we’ve talked about some of the books written by Jim Collins. The Vision Framework by Jom Collins is a great resource that helps entrepreneurs get their vision made clear. We dive deep into the technicalities of the framework and how it paved the path to creating and developing Digible’s vision.
If you search for #digibledogs on LinkedIn or Instagram, you’re going to some of the little friends we have at Digible. And that is just one of the many out-of-the-box things we do at Digible to create a work environment that makes the typical day of work more exciting than ever. We talk about why Digible is dedicated to creating a better work culture, some of the strategies Digible utilizes to make it happen, such as introducing a four-day workweek, and how these efforts have improved the culture of Digible.
Another area we explore in this episode is the BHAG, aka the big hairy audacious goal. We talk about Digible’s BHAG, the process of defining the BHAG and its key components, Digible’s long-term and short-term goals to expand the business, make its technology available for more users, and ultimately make the world a better place.
