Yesterday was a fine day.
A developer on my team prototyped a possible solution to questions and theories that had been previously raised to improve usability and increase conversion on one of our applications.
He got to run it by various stake-holders. After constructive feedback and suggestions, they concluded: "Sounds good, let's try it". The whole decision-making process took but a few minutes.
I see this scenario unfold on a daily basis across the entire engineering team, deeply engaged in working closely with Product Management and Business to promote the success of products we build.
While there are key final decision makers who "make the call" in absence of consensus, everybody here seems open to execute on fresh opinions and innovative ideas.
