How We Approach Things


Start with the End in Mind

"You can't get there if you don't know what there is."  The first step with achieving any goal is to clarify the problem or challenge, identify the desired outcomes, and come up with a shared understanding of how we might measure progress.

No One Size Fits All

Our starting positions, our skills, our desired outcomes are all different -- so we don't rely on one framework or toolset to get things done. Instead we use our lean and agile principles that guide us to experiment, seek feedback, and learn fast.

Learning Comes from Practice

To quote Ted Lasso, "Taking on a challenge is a lot like riding a horse, isn't it?  If you are comfortable while doing it, you are probably doing it wrong."  To learn, you must get out of your comfort zone. We look to enable teams through a combination of instructor-led workshops, on-the-job trying of ideas, and coaching feedback.

Iterate, Iterate, and Iterate More

Working with BluHound, you will hear two things consistently:  "Try Fast, failure is not guaranteed -- what is guaranteed is learning" and "Let's get something done."  We approach all of our work with this mindset, and we look at everything we do as an opportunity to iterate through the learning loop.  We focus on getting some little thing done fast, so we can get some feedback, learn something new, and do it all over again.
