9 Notions of Innovation

  • Google expects everyone to innovate, even the finance team. Ideas come from everywhere.
  • Share everything you can. Every idea, every project, every deadline — it’s all accessible to everyone on the intranet.
  • You’re brilliant, we’re hiring. Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin approve hires. They favor intelligence over experience.
  • A license to pursue dreams. Employees get a “free” day a week. Half of new launches come from this “20% time”.
  • Innovation, not instant perfection. Google launches early and often in small beta tests, before releasing new features widely.
  • Don’t politic, use data. Mayer discourages the use of “I like” in meetings, pushing staffers to use metrics.
  • Creativity loves restraint. Give people a vision, rules about how to get there, and deadlines
  • Worry about usage and users, not money. Provide something simple to use and easy to love. The money will follow.
  • Don’t kill projects — morph them. There’s always a kernel of something good that can be salvaged

    Meetings get a bad rap in business today and for good reason—very little gets accomplished in them. I can recall a Dilbert cartoon in which several people sat around a table while the meeting organizer said, “There is no specific agenda for this meeting. As usual, we’ll just make unrelated emotional statements about things which bother us…” That pretty much sums it up. The majority of meetings are unstructured, uninspiring, and unproductive. But they don’t have to be that way.
