Interesting principles that Jeff Bezos uses to run his teams and meetings:
- Two Pizza Teams (if you can’t feed them with two pizzas, the team is too large)
- No PowerPoint presentations. Prepare a real memo; improve the work, edit it over a few days. PowerPoints don’t tell a full story.
- Start with silence. Read the memos (see #2) like “study hall” for about a half-hour. Then discuss it.
It’s hard to argue with his company’s success. Try these principles and see how they work for you.
