While building and growing companies, we focus on technology, customers, revenue but most often miss out on some basic tenets that build and sustain great companies; values, culture, people that are foundational elements for long term success. I came across this presentation that outlines the culture of Netflix. Even though Netflix faced some challenges in 2012, if they “walk the talk” as presented in this material, they will thrive in the long term. Enjoy the presentation below.
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg praised the deck saying:
“It may well be the most important document ever to come out of the Valley.”
A high performance culture generates high performing teams that deliver sustained great results. It is refreshing to see the importance given to honesty, selflessness and teamwork. The difference between “good process” and “bad process” is important because as companies grow they tend to implement complex processes that inhibit innovation and speed. Responsible policies foster responsibility.
