Google's 9 Steps to Innovation

Chris Harris's blog identifies an interesting list of Google's 9 Steps to Innovation.

  • Innovation, not instant perfection.
  • Share everything you can.
  • You’re brilliant, we’re hiring.
  • Allow employees to pursue their dreams.
  • Ideas come from everywhere.
  • Don’t politic – use data.
  • Creativity loves restraint.
  • Get users and usage – the money will follow.
  • Don’t kill projects, morph them.

(He provides lots more editorial if your interested.)

It struck me how counter most of these are to the closed, execution oriented culture most organizations around here have.
