Blue Collar Objects was formed to create an ecosystem where talented individuals or business entities could come together for mutual benefits though they might be geographically dispersed. Over the years, we’ve evolved Agile management techniques and developed software to enable us to execute our initial motivation for forming a company. Our vision is to organize the work of a generation. This is a generation moving more and more to social and business structures where communications are online and relationships are often transient. Below is a list of accomplishments leading up to the creation of a platform to simplify collaboration and doing work with teams composed of possibly geographically dispersed humans, but more importantly, simplifies the achievement of high performance teams in a transparent environment.
