Google CEO Eric Schmidt, along with co-author UC Berkeley professor Hal Varian,, has written: "Google's Ten Golden Rules" for Newsweek on getting the most out of knowledge workers. Google's 10 Golden Rules are:
- Hire by committee
- Cater to their every need
- Pack them in
- Make coordination easy
- Eat your own dog food
- Encourage creativity
- Strive to reach consensus
- Don't be evil (Note: we knew it had to be there somewhere)
- Data drive decisions
- Communicate effectively
Obviously, the article has a bit of discussion about each rule. I'm going to take some time to analyze. More later. I also wouldn't doubt that Danny and Chris will also share some thoughts later on. Thanks to Greg Linden for the news tip (Greg also has a few thoughts from previous posts that he includes).
I would love to read other search CEO's share their golden rules. I wonder if Semel, Berkowitz, Gates/Ballmer, and even the leaders of smaller engines are already working on their lists. How do they compare.
