We, the people who are Agile Learning Labs, strive to act in alignment with these values. Our decisions are informed by these values. We seek outcomes that advance these values.
In order of priority, we take care of: ourselves, our coworkers, our customers, and our community. It’s like the oxygen mask on the airplane; we take care of ourselves first, so that we will be able to help others. We take care of our coworkers, so that they will be better able to take care of our customers and community.
We strive to understand today’s reality and make tomorrow’s better. We encourage experimentation, and celebrate the learning that comes from our failures, just as we celebrate our successes.
We say what we mean, and mean what we say. We keep our commitments. We strive for transparency and honesty in all of our dealings.
We endeavor to increase the prosperity of all of the people that we work with, so we create arrangements in which everyone involved comes out ahead.
Fun is not frivolous, it is a goal at least as worthy as financial gain. We will make time for fun. We will prefer ways of working together that are fun.
Great things happen when people do what they are passionate about. If we aren’t passionate about it, maybe we shouldn’t be doing it. We want to work with others who are also passionate about their work. We seek to enable people to pursue their passions.
Community, a group of individuals linked by common interest, can be a source of inspiration, information, feedback, collaboration, and socialization. We foster community around the areas of interest with which we engage.
We build relationships around common goals and work interdependently to achieve them.
We participate in non-profit activities that improve the lives of our peers, our customers, and our community.
We value the long-term health of our people, our business, and our community above short-term gain.
