Deacom believes that the speed of this learning cycle determines the long-term relevance and success of all companies and products. Creating ways to increase the speed of this cycle impacts all management decisions at Deacom. Deacom’s strategy not to use offshore development resources, not to do customized software and the decision to focus on a single vertical market all derived from the need for speed. Like the International Olympic motto of “Faster, Higher, Stronger”, Deacom uses this learning cycle to create a culture of gradual and constant improvement to get better every day.
