"Swim lanes" philosophy
202 Partners Swim Lanes
  • 202 are focused on high quality, collaborative teamwork
  • Everyone has a specialized role and their own swim lane
  • We all swim in the same direction, with shared goals and aligned rewards
  • We embrace a diversity of motivated swimmers from all backgrounds
  • We believe in small teams of A+ players, not battalions of B or C players, or solo superheroes, who start well but struggle to deliver
Notes
  • “None of us is smarter than all of us” comes from the book “High Five - the Magic of Working Together.”
  • 202 is the traditional telephone area code for Washington, DC
