Mission-Based Teaming @ Mods

Radically different engineering. Radically different commercial. Radically different execution.

Over the past six months, we've discovered new tools, ideas, and processes that support our effort in working in radically different ways. The purpose of this website is to capture these tools, ideas, processes, and, most importantly, the lessons we've learned so far.

The process of becoming a mission-based team does not happen overnight. It only happens when individuals within the organization begin learning, thinking, and working in a new way.
