Processes. We are guided by our agile approach, which is very much team-based. Be believe that the entire team is responsible for the User Stories we deliver. If we succeed, it is a team win. If we fail, it is a team failure. As a team, we perform knowledge sharing rituals (KSRs), pair programming, and sprint retrospectives to ensure that we are working smart and according to best practices. We strive to document everything we do so the next person who comes along doesn’t have to figure it out from scratch. This also helps with our employee on-boarding, transition-in, and transition-out.
