How to build Google like team

3 Apr

1. Teams size should be less than 5.

2. All leaders no followers.

3. Don’t hire spotless people, Look for spots in the people which matters the most.

4. Punish mediocre success and reward excellent failures.

5. Don’t award TOP 1% and create 99% people unhappy. Award TOP 99% and Fire rest 1%, create 100% happy employees.

6. Freedom to loose = Celebrate failures = Team which looses most wins on creativity.

7. Kill “Lick my ass” kinda managers.

8. Kill project meetings instead go for drink parties and fight over your creative opinion.

9. Don’t work on a project instead own project.

10. Bring design and creativity in all aspect of work.

11. Don’t work when your energies are low as your work requires the best times of the day.

12. Fire managers and buy Leaders.

13. Creativity is driven by stomach so don’t work with empty stomach instead eat best food you love.

14. Don’t earn money earn reputation.

15. First build the product than collect the requirement than do project planning than test it and if it sucks.

Repeat the above cycle.

    Google-like team, okay. I wonder how one punishes mediocre success. If you do, the punished may hold back until he/she is certain that the next project is a sure success. In doing that, you destry team-building and effort. Also number 6 above is opposite of number 4. Get the blog post together. It is all over the place.
    To sustain not working when your energies are low (#11) and not to earn money, but reputation (#14) means your pockets have to be as deep as Google’s, afterall even Google is in it for the money!

    On Mcneri,
    Mediocre success is very clearly visible, its totally dependent on leaders who are leading the project and what they are trying to achieve.
    I said excellent may can judge if you are trying to build some thing new and try some new techniques or some new idea to make project works..or find solution which you are stuck into it.
    But dont come up with the same old solution which is like solving one problem gives birth to ten new problems.
    Working in a innovative environment doesn’t requires deep pocket instead it requires good team with a great leader. You will see the diff.
    If you don’t agree and look into the history how come 2 or 3 people team startup beats the billion dollar ten year old company.Its deep into our human nature which can beat the elephant with right people.

    You are wondering how two or three people start-up and beat a ten-year-old company. I will tell you: Google started off as a PhD thesis by the founders. I will blog about the original Google document in the next week or so. Despite that, the team were supported by Stanford University since what they were doing was part of their PhD studies there. The rest is history, so what I am pointinmg to is that you have to have some degree of wealth/finance/infrastructure to be able to pull off what you are advicing here. Besides, Google was not like it is now when they started!

    Who are the others of this blog? I think you are a bunch of kids with no idea of what it is to run/manage kids. I was looking for something else when I bumped into this. A sensational looking headline but no substance.
