Management principles

People are paramount

Fostering an inclusive, psychologically safe environment where people are empowered to do their best work is essential to creating a motivated, healthy team.

Process yields progress

Processes promote a reliable standard of quality and push initiatives towards impactful outcomes. They're essential to building and maintaining a high-performing team.

Objectives matter

Goals should be well-defined, with clear connections to user and business needs. Ambitious goals inspire—ensure everyone knows what's expected of them.
