Our Values

Our Values

  • We put the customer at the centre of everything we do: The relationship with the customer is everything. If it is right, you are assured continued business and loyalty.
  • Be creative: foster creative people, environments, collaborations.
  • Move quickly: the market is moving fast…IT is evolving at rapid speeds. Move quickly and get your product to a pilot group.
  • Imperfect is perfect: do not wait for something to be perfect before releasing it to your target audience. Do not wait for every feature and detail to be perfected. The feedback of your users and peers during the early stages of any development project is invaluable and will allow you to iterate to success OR fail fast.
  • Fail Fast: Do not be afraid to fail. Every failure should be logged as a lesson and reviewed regularly so you don’t do the same thing twice.
  • Pivot: with rapid speed comes the need to change course to meet evolving needs. The decisions you made a week ago may not be the right decisions in the following week and being able to pivot and change course quickly is important.
  • When your wrong, say your wrong: ask your staff to tell you when you are wrong and likewise, admit you were wrong and correct the error.
  • Don’t aim to agree, aim to collaborate: engage people that have differing skills to your own and knowing this don’t aim to have them agree with you. Varying perspectives is crucial to the development of well-rounded products, services and businesses. Aim to collaborate with start-ups, people and mentors that offer skill you don’t have.
  • Don’t aim to be unique, aim to meet a need that inspires you: Facebook was not the first university based social networking tool but it was the one the universe fell in love with because its founder was truly inspired by communication. Choose something that inspires you and just aim to be the best you can be doing just that.
  • Don’t bust-up, bust-through: When you’re working with a person who drives you barney, once again, don’t aim to get along…varying perspectives are welcome. Aim instead to find ways to resolve your issues by being open and honest in your communication and seeking to understand.
