Operating Principles

Our refined approach to solving big problem.

 
 
Think.png

Think Big, Start Small, Learn Fast.
The future isn’t a slightly different version of the present.

  • Don’t fall in love with your ideas or solutions, keep asking tough questions and be ready to alter projects based on what we learn, not what we hope.
  • Don’t design the entire solution but break down the solution into small components, take the big idea and split this into smaller pieces which can then be treated as mini projects.
  • Don’t make decisions based on intuition, backup ideas with good data from small tests.
 
 
 
Prioritise.png

Prioritise Ruthlessly.
Only pursue the very best ideas

  • Don’t be satisfied with shipping something, be satisfied knowing it’s the most effective thing we could ship.
  • Don’t lose focus and try to do everything.
  • Don’t think that prioritisation means doing things that will have a positive impact.

Measure First, Measure Always.

If all we’ve got is data let’s go with data, but if all we’ve got are opinions let’s go with mine.

  • Don’t start with metrics, start with a goal.
  • Don’t make decisions based on somebody saying “trust me”, or “everybody’s asking for it” or “if only we had xyz, product would sell itself".
