  • Alignment of individual capabilities to purpose
  • Alignment of work processes, tooling and systems of work that balances teams to be creatively effective within their scope of work while meeting the interface requirements to deliver the inputs and outputs needed.
  • The openness of communication and the ability to deal with the hard truth about hard things.
