Our Working Principles

Adaptability: Inspection and feedback

We continuously assess the quality of the product we're building, our plan, and the effectiveness of our processes. That understanding enables us to adapt or make changes to the product design, plan, and process.


Our innovative solutions bring about long-term gains.


We take responsibility as a team. We self-organize in a way that helps us keep our commitments. We understand that we collectively share goals.


Simplifying processes and eliminating redundant work increases productivity.


We're open and transparent about the way we work and make decisions. We keep the basis for our decisions, work, and progress visible at all times.
