DELIVER - Finish Frequently & Efficiently, Simplify
Chris Taylor, May 2, 2022
Our final core value is about getting things done. This is something we talk about a lot at Tack Systems and I usually reference Larry the Cable Guy. If you don't know who this is, Google him. He's a famous comedian that says "Git-R-Done" like a redneck. I love this type of humor. And, I also love getting things done.
There are, evidently, a lot of software companies who don't get things done. This year we've stepped in to several projects where a previous company started a project and never got close to the finish line. It's surprising to me that this is true because I've always been the type of person that finishes what I start. However, I understand the complexities of technical projects and understand how things can go wrong.
It was gratifying to see the software development community adopt the Agile methodology. This started just over 20 years ago and began gaining popularity after I had already been developing software for over 10 years. It affirms the get it done mindset in establishing principles like "early and continuous delivery of valuable software", "deliver working software frequently", and "working software is the primary measure of progress." Agile was a breath of fresh air for me because I prefer writing code and delivering solutions.
So, we love to break projects down into small, usable pieces and deliver working software in phases whenever possible.Return to Blog List
