Our Approach

Our team puts experimentation as our top strategy. This is valuable to us because we get to test various strategies and decide which works best for us. The concept of trial and error is unique compared to the other teams in our class, but it is the most useful tactic for us to succeed. We approach this strategy by having conversations about the different ideas we visualize. We create strategies and analyze the strengths and weaknesses of each idea. Then we set out to build them and decide which design is the most beneficial for our team.
