Which Operating Principle did this team embody? We focus on services
Describe what this team did that embodied the Berkeley Operating Principle selected above:

The Effort Reporting January 1, 2016 to June 30, 2016 was a challenge for most but this team took it by the horns and accomplished the ultimate success of completion for faculty to certify their reports. No one waited, no one let a day go by without constant communication with their faculty. Each one was proactive and some even created innovative ways to get the job done. During the last nine days after the ERSO PI Deadline when we received the daily report that showed reports still needing certification I took great pride that this team only had two. With five days remaining to the "Hard deadline" we had zero. I want to acknowledge this team with a big High 5 for their focus on service, their dedication and their strength to accomplish difficult challenges.

Customer Service Example:

Veronika has been instrumental in helping with business contracts invoicing. She is always helping to work out the kinks and make the process simpler. She makes herself available for every question I have and is always patient. She has been exceedingly helpful in providing understanding and assistance. I can't imagine what I'd do without her help! Thanks, Veronika!
