What is the T.R.A.C.C?

"What is the T.R.A.C.C?", one of my co-workers asked, and realized I haven't explicitly mentioned what the T.R.A.C.C was. Well, no time like the present to rectify this.

T.R.A.C.C is a catchy acronym for the values here at Macadamian. These are values we try to live by. Everyone from the President, to the lowliest cubicle dweller in the dustiest part of the office. Every single employee and new hire are taught these. We are graded against these on our year end reviews. Needless to say, we take it very importantly.

Simply put, T.R.A.C.C stands for:
  • Transparency
  • Responsiveness
  • Agility
  • Constant improvement
  • Collaboration

I have talked about transparency already, and in the coming days and weeks I hope to provide real world examples of applying these values in practice, even when the project goes red. I feel that it is in these times, when the project is red, the customer is agitated, and the team is demoralized that staying true to these values, and providing strong leadership to the team that you will be able to turn that project from red, to green.
