Guiding Principles

Key principles that guide the design & development of Ayanza


Built For The Success

Team productivity tools should be built with a single goal in mind → to help their users be more successful. Building such software is a mission, not a business.

Collaboration Over Siloes

All-in-one simple collaboration software that is suitable for all teams is better than a stack of highly specialized tools understood only by a few individuals.

“No” To Chaos In Work

A logically organized, clear & easily understandable system of work is everyone’s right, not a privilege. It is a top prerequisite for focused work and productivity.

Automation Of Progress Visibility

We should not waste our precious time figuring out what work was done, what changed, or what progress was made.

A good productivity tool should do this for us, so we can focus on what matters.

Human Connection & Team Experience

Lively communication hub built for real people, their needs, and interests over boring corporate-style software without soul.

Practices For Success

Best team practices that you can adapt when using Ayanza


Start With Vision, Strategy & Objectives

Not knowing what you want to achieve is a guarantee that you won’t. Whatever you are doing, start by asking yourselves the following questions:

  • What is the ideal future that you want to create? → Vision

  • How will you succeed in creating your ideal future? → Strategy

  • What milestones will contribute to your success? → Objectives

Connect Daily Actions To The Broader Perspective

Every task you do should directly contribute to your goals. If it doesn’t, then don’t do it. Once you link your tasks to specific objectives, the following will happen:

  • It becomes crystal clear who and how contributes to the broader goals

  • Everyone will take bigger ownership of their tasks when they understand how their work directly impacts the success of the organization

Set An Operating Rhythm For Your Team

Every team operates in its own unique rhythm. What is yours? What do you want it to be? The sooner you set it, the sooner it becomes a healthy team habit.

Here are a few examples to get you started:

  • Set a Weekly Vision on Monday to align on what will happen during the week

  • Practice a Daily Standup every morning to decide on daily priorities

  • Run a Retrospective on Friday to reflect on the past week’s achievements
