- Hashicorp's Operating Cadence
HashiCorp's operating cadence consists of annual, quarterly and weekly rhythms to drive the business. Scorecards define objectives at each level, with scorecard reviews as the rituals to track progress. The company goals aim to win practitioners, enable customers and grow the ecosystem. The cadence principles are federated accountability, reflection over perfection, and finding leverage. The annual planning summit uses simulations to discuss executive focuses. Quarterly business reviews assess scorecards and WAR tables to identify improvements. The weekly executive meeting reviews corporate reporting packs to ensure metrics stay on track. The operating cadence has matured from initially observing lagging indicators, to identifying leading indicators with leverage, aiming to ultimately design a complex system of positive loops.
