Trust your team. Be radically honest. And never, ever try to please your boss.
These are some of the ground rules if you work at Netflix. They are part of a unique cultural experiment that explains how the company has transformed itself at lightning speed from a DVD mail order service into a streaming superpower - with 190 million fervent subscribers and a market capitalisation that rivals the likes of Disney.
Finally Reed Hastings, Netflix Chairman and CEO, is sharing the secrets that have revolutionised the entertainment and tech industries. With INSEAD business school professor Erin Meyer, he will explore his leadership philosophy - which begins by rejecting the accepted beliefs under which most companies operate - and how it plays out in practice at Netflix.
From unlimited holidays to abolishing approvals, Netflix offers a fundamentally different way to run any organisation, one far more in tune with an ever-changing fast-paced world. For anyone interested in creativity, productivity and innovation, the Netflix culture is something close to a holy grail. This book will make it, and its creator, fully accessible for the first time.
This book is very clearly written with the concepts explained in detail and supported by numerous examples. It is a must-read for anyone working in almost any sort of organization. There are tons of valuable pieces of advice and concrete suggestions on how to improve in different areas. It is easy to see why Netflix has so many high-talent individuals and has had so much success after reading about the culture it strives to maintain
One of the best books I've read this year. I love the concept of this book about how to make Netflix succeed, which includes increasing talents density, building up candor, and removing control. This concept can be applied into any organization if you consider it carefully
