In a post for PoynterOnline, Steve Myers reports on what one of the Google teams had to say about management and innovation in their presentation at SXSW.
Some of the lessons:
- Set a specific goal, even if you don’t know how you’re going to accomplish it
- Create a culture that promotes getting things done above all else.
- Shield your employees from unnecessary distractions (i.e. bad suggestions from both inside and outside the organisation) so they can focus on their current goals.
- Enable every employee to do something about their great ideas.
- Make sure any new features you want to add don’t screw up what you do well right now.
- “Overcommunicate” with the people using your products about any changes you’re planning on making.
