How Google Works

I’ve been a fan of Slideshare for a while now. Its a great resource for sharing ideas across a range of disciplines. A great example that I came across last week was from Google ex-CEO Eric Schmidt. It’s worth reading for anyone interested in creating products and companies that attract great talent.

The presentation gives a taste of the content in the new book written with Jonathan Rosenberg. They describe how most companies are ‘slow by design’ and how to capitalise in a world where change is accelerating.

While much of the advice looks to be geared towards companies that are still planning their culture and strategic foundation, it still provides useful advice for more established organisations that are looking at change through better internal communication and decision-making.

The book is on order so we’ll wait to pass judgement for now. In the meantime there are some additional insights on the accompanying website.
