From our Philosophy, we derive our simple Constitution. These are not only rules for the employees, they are FOR the employees (they act as their shield), a check and balance between
management and employees.
Why would we give our team-mates such extraordinary powers to check superiors? Because we wish to attract the best talent, and talent such as this demands that its voices are heard.
- No decision can be made if a team-mate says that the decision is NOT constitutional. This is a serious claim and goes up the chain-of-command. It is incumbent upon the majority to
convince the minority on the constitutionality of a decision.
- If a decision IS constitutional, the minority still has the right to dissent (via a minority report), but they must comply with the majority. The minority report is not a protest vote, it
is a last means of communication. It should be answered by the majority, in writing.
- No decision by bluster. Bluster is a fireable offence at Molten-Labs. Seriously.
- Quick & Dirty is never quick, but always dirty.
- Don’t "Volkswagen" the problem. Always find the ethical and elegant solution.
- No design choices at the first design meeting. Go away and stew on the problem - see "productive thinking".
