Operating & Collaboration Principles
- Find a subject matter expert and bake them into your process. Here is why.
- Be clear about which mode you’re in: discussion and learning, generating ideas, or solving problems.
- Engage with curiosity about each other’s viewpoints. Resolve disagreements through experimentation.
- Assume good intent. People only take actions based on their own viewpoint, so understanding their viewpoint gives you insight and information.
- Law of mobility! If you find yourself neither contributing nor learning, consider finding another place to be!
This hackathon is open to attendees of all ages and from all backgrounds, genders, and geographies.
