How We Work at Basecamp

This is a map of practices we use at Basecamp to repeatedly ship improvements without delays and backlogs. They've been honed over 15 years of trial and error. 

The practices are presented as a pattern language in the spirit of Christopher Alexander's A Pattern Language. The diagram was inspired by the map of patterns in Eric Evans' Domain-Driven Design.


I'll walk through the patterns in a series of videos.
