The OuiShare Values

A lot of things happen in OuiShare not because we have strong processes or good managers but because we share a same culture and values that help to make things happen.

An initial set of OuiShare values was defined in 2012 at the second OuiShare Summit. Then, since we are in permanent beta, In 2017 we went through a process to make a new version of this list of values.

Here is the new set of values that describe our mindset. FYI the wording may evolve in the coming months when the communication people will work on sharing this new ste outside our community.
