Netflix Culture

Many of you may have seen this already, but if you haven't I think it's an essential read. "Freedom and Responsibility Culture" describes how Netflix resolves the challenges involved in growing rapidly while maintaining a culture that supports rapid innovation and excellent execution. It's a good explanation of why they don't adopt the process-bound, complex-compensation approach that I see at many organisations. Some of what they do is consistent with what we do at Cogent, but some of it is radical even for me (for example, there is no vacation policy!). I wish I had read it earlier.
