It’s easy to get lost in the code, go with the flow and forget to ask more questions. Well, I have so many questions.
- Do you know the why behind what you’re doing?
- Do you agree?
- What are our expectations of ourselves, our peers and our responsibilities?
- What actually matters?
- What do we value?
- Are we prioritising the right things?
- Can we do better?
Let’s explore these questions together.
