Love your members

Let’s love your team members and become an organization that performs well.

While design retains industrial aspects with mass and quick production, it also strongly maintains the characteristics of craftsmanship. On the other hand, in software development, the proliferation of design processes systematizes various things.

In this context, what remains of the often excluded subjectivity, and how can coexistence be achieved by preserving it? Also, what kind of subjectivity should we leave behind as a team to function within the organization? I believe it is love and empathy.

Let’s explore together what we can do to create teams that achieve high performance regardless of the relationships across business entities based on my experiences.
