OUR CORE VALUES
Ideas Over Rank: The best ideas can come from any part of our organization. Without our team members feeling free to ideate and promote their ideas we will not overcome the immense challenges that we face. We believe that psychological safety is a necessity for high-performing teams.
Intense Customer Focus: Through having an intense customer focus, we balance the needs of users at all levels, from hands-on-keyboard users to operators of large-scale weapon systems, with Air Force strategic goals to ensure stakeholder satisfaction at the highest levels. We’re not building products that won’t be used. We ensure user desirability by building empathy with our users and working tirelessly to solve their problems.
Bias for Action: At the heart of agile is being responsive to change rather than building extensive plans that are not revisited until the established goals are accomplished. At Kessel Run we decide and act quickly, which allows us to learn faster and make meaningful decisions in the future.
Continuous Evolution: We haven’t gotten everything right and we won’t going forward. We will, however, always learn from our failures and be better because of them. We continuously learn from our users, continuously grow as individuals and continuously evolve as an organization.
