Making the Invisible, Visible with Progressive Insurance

Hear how Progressive Insurance visualizes their Stack Overflow for Teams data to reveal cross team collaboration

In early 2020, Progressive opened their new Open Source Office in support of their ongoing agile transformation with goals to help break down silos and keep employees connected.

To better understand how they could support their employees, the team at Progressive leveraged the flexible API from Stack Overflow for Teams to visualize how knowledge flows between departments and gain more insight into trending questions, topics and concerns.

Meet James Morgan and Michael “d00d” Parkins from Progressive. Hear how they are creating a culture of collaboration, how they are using data to reveal cross team collaboration, and how you can apply their approach within your organization.
