Maintain a Client-Focused Culture

We recognize that our clients—whether they are federal, state, or district-level decision makers, educators, or learners—are the most important aspect of our determination to improve teaching and learning.

Demonstrate Respect

We demonstrate respect through the integrity of our interactions with others, both within and outside Measured Progress.

Expect Quality

Our definition of quality includes creativity and innovation as well as thoroughness and accuracy. We provide this quality in our products and services and in efficient processes.

Work as a Team

We need each other to be successful. We consider all our stakeholders part of our team and work toward our shared success. Our accomplishments are based on collaboration and open communication.

Be Accountable

We also step up as individuals to propose solutions, uncover gaps, and take ownership of our work. We use experience and feedback to learn from our mistakes and improve our processes and outcomes.

Lead Change

As individuals and as a company, we welcome learning, innovation, and change as organic elements of our continued corporate health. We demonstrate this in our search for new business arenas, solutions, and processes.

Make a Positive Impact

We are acutely aware that our work affects students, educators, parents, and communities. We base our decisions on what is good for students, designing only products and services that we believe have a positive impact on education.
