Company Credo

[ #5254 ]

In a fit I wrote a credo for my company. I mostly did it because I was reading _Built to Last_ and I was thinking that the company needed an ethical foundation. I also think it helps to have a guideline for expected behaviour.

Then again it was 2am and I may have just been too sleep deprived to think clearly. In any case I passed it along to the president of the company. He seems to like it. I guess I'll see how it turns out.

  • This sounds suspiciously like Jerry Maguire, and you know what happened to him!
    • In this case the president of the company is one of my best friends. He actually liked it. So I don't think I have to worry about a Jerry Maguire moment. :-)
  • A... credo? Is that like a mission statement [lonsteins.com]?
    • Maybe. I see it as a guideline for behavior and an ethical foundation for the company. It is a mission statement in the simplest of definitions. I want to give the company a sense of purpose and a expectation of behaviour.

      I want the words to have meaning to everyone in the company and to our customers as well.

      Maybe it's drawing a line in the sand. What can I say it was induced by a lack of sleep and what I consider to be good management ideas.
