INSTANT MBA: 'Reply-All' Emails Won't Get The Job Done

Today’s advice comes from IndieGoGo co-founder Slava Rubin at Inc.:“Once your company is made up of more than 10 people, it is both harder and more important to have everyone on the team ‘singing the same song.’ “

IndieGoGo, a fundraising website, has grown from five to 18 employees in the last six months. The old system, which relied primarily on emails and impromptu meetings for decision-making, wasn’t going to cut it anymore.

Now, the company has “a fluid set of meetings,” some held daily, weekly, and monthly, which they use to communicate the company’s goals and values, set priorities and make decisions. 

“I’ve really come to believe that communicating your core messages clearly (and often!) is the key to keeping everyone on track.”
