Organisations and culture

Reposted Gemini and Google’s Culture – Stratechery by Ben Thompson.

Google, quite clearly, needs a similar transformation: the point of the company ought not be to tell users what to think, but to help them make important decisions, as Page once promised. That means, first and foremost, excising the company of employees attracted to Google’s power and its potential to help them execute their political program, and return decision-making to those who actually want to make a good product.

Ben Thompson is, as always, on the money. Even if you’re not particularly concerned about the tech oligopolies, this is well worth a read for the insights into organisational culture and leadership, and how the two are, in essence, inseparable.
