From Culture To Everyday Life
Legendary. Integrity. Learning. Communication And Collaboration. A Positive And Can-Do Spirit. Agility. A Little Touch Of Magic.
These are but a few essentials that inspires us, defines us, meshes with everything we do.
But while having values appear to be meant for others' appreciation, this is really for us.
This is us. Win or lose.
Where Power Resides
Democracy. Meritocracy. Holacracy.
Much has been said about the importance of people in business, at work, and in life; about how they are the key resources to an enterprise.
But then, most will just treat people as resources: cogs and parts in a machinery built for purposes designed and optimised for economics, control, manageability, predictability, and replaceability.
You cannot borrow excellence and brilliance.
And you cannot achieve it by simply lowering all standards that deter you the honor.
It is earned.
You may buy it sometimes, or hire it sometimes, or control it sometimes, or even pretend to be it sometimes...
People are people.
We built and are continuously building a company we can be proud of, not just for the profits most hope will prove their worth or others will envy; but rather, because we have done good by ourselves through the value we have crafted with and for others.
At Javasparks, we have unofficial titles for legal and administrative purposes. But from the beginning till the end of the day, leadership over here is a function of service, not control.
Everyone can lead and everyone is expected to. We are a constantly evolving swarm of diverse minded people with shared principles, understanding, and objectives to move things forward.
We execute and operate in a way that is optimised for MAPs: mastery, autonomy, and purpose.
We believe we cannot achieve this by simply having someone dangle a carrot in front of us or brandish a stick behind us.
We serve each other in all directions. Everyone is responsible and accountable for each other.
Call it chaos and amateurism. We call it empowering the best in each other.
If you are ever over here, you would not have guessed it, but the person sweeping the floor may very well be the CEO.
Why We Do What We Do
With a combined experience that spans decades, we have served customers and patrons in almost every industry.
Internet. Retail. E-Commerce. Government. E-Government. Defense. Sciences. Smart Cities. Open Source. Energy. Utilities. Telecommunications. Agriculture. Manufacturing. Banking. Finance. Insurance. Food. Beverage. Restaurants. Malls. Healthcare. Education. Transportation. Environment. Weather. Animation. Rescue and Relief. Aerospace. Outerspace. Quantum Computing.
It has been a privilege.
Our customers are half the reason for our being; the other half is ourselves.
Yes, it has been heard time and time again that customer-centricity is everything. If you really think about it, what moves things forward is half practicality and half imagination. It is half serving the known needs of the present while the other half is pursuing a vision learned from lessons with everyone --- sprinkled generously with a curious imagination of what is possible in the future.
We keep saying the wisdom of standing on the shoulders of giants over here.
It is both a humble point of view and a practical standpoint to pursue thoughts, strategies, tactics, ideas, innovations, planning, operations, finances, opportunities, and improvements.
We model our methodologies along the lines of nature more than the lines of industrial and mechanical perspectives.
We believe that all of this is an ecosystem or a system of systems which we are a part of.
We make the most of the hands we are dealt with. For the rest of the gaps, we bond with our band of brothers, sisters, friends, and family.
Competition is really not our thing.
We dream dreams, set sights, establish standards, prepare strengths, build alliances, cooperate on common goals, and just get going.
Wind Beneath Our Wings
Running together gets us farther. Every help and nudge to get us faster and stronger or to pick us up when we falter or weaken is welcome sunshine.
We kept on being taught that in the world of business, leverage is everything and trust is a joke.
We believe that statement is the joke.
Trust and character is the foundation of all modern business. It is the energy beneath microseconds and macrostructures in the economics of the world.
Investing in us is a privilege and a responsibility to stay true to that trust.
All "Value" and "About Us" statements mean nothing without trust.
We choose each other as we believe in each other. Let us have a talk over a walk.
