A great presentation on corporate culture

UPDATE – when writing this yesterday I forgot to thank Will Reeve for the pointer.

This presentation from Netflix has some fantastic content. I particularly like the way the explanation of how values need to work in a company, the detail behind the values and the emphasis on managing using strategy and context rather than control.

Some of it goes a bit far though, notably their ideas around pay.

It’s a bit long, but it is worth the read.

    Yes far too long the average employee will either skim or give up – reminds me of the 80s management consultancy style of strategy doc – I suppose for people playing the big game for the first time it may seem fresh thinking. I wonder how often it will get updated – it must have taken a while for them to put together and right as some of the stuff seems, the real world of people at different levels do not function that way. Like most teams particularly over 100 people there is always compromise based on attractiveness in the market and your point on the curve in that market. It will of course appeal to advisors and any ex corporate/consultancy types making their early entrepreneurial play.
