Product Principles at Clockwise
Product Principles are statements that provide guidance about the experiences we create, and how we work together to create them. They’re especially useful in helping us know which path to take when making difficult trade-offs. They don’t need to be comprehensive, but they should provide opinionated guidance on issues we frequently grapple with. At their best, product principles establish shared vernacular, and are frequently referenced by individuals and teams across EPD in their day-to-day work. Great product teams revisit and evolve their principles over time.
