At mobileFX there is no complex administrative structure; more specifically, company organizational and operational structure follows the Extreme Professionals (XP) model where Administration, Marketing and Development are tight coupled in order to foster decisions on the system development process. The XP techniques adopted are viewed as methods for rapidly building and disseminating institutional knowledge among the members of the team. The goal is to provide a shared view of the system at all levels which matches the view held by the users and customers of the system. To this end, XP favors simple designs, common metaphors, collaboration of all members, frequent verbal communication, and feedback. The key benefit of such structure is flexibility where at the same time due to the small size of the team, principles are intended to be more concrete than the values and more easily translated to guidance in a practical situation.
