The Importance of Product

the team owns the process: all members contribute to the continued refinement of our
the process itself is a work in progress: continually iterated upon to adjust to changes in the landscape

The Importance of Team
we trust in each other to do their best
no blockers: unblocking someone else will almost always take priority over your own work
