The ADEQ Way

The ADEQ Way

Following are ADEQ's 10 organizational habits, known as the "ADEQ Way," that help leadership and staff fulfill our important mission. 

  • Evaluate everything we do for its impact on the mission. 
  • Hire only those who believe in our way and have a passion for their work. 
  • Train those who cannot, replace those who will not, and promote those who excel.
  • Never hide a problem — respect others enough to be honest, even if the truth is uncomfortable.
  • Do not blame, but hold each other accountable.
  • Involve end users early and often when creating or improving services.
  • Never stop asking why.
  • Continuously design and redesign for quality and radical simplicity.
  • Freely discuss, promptly decide, and totally commit.
  • Do not fear failure.
