Jason Fried on Collaboration and Productivity
Jason Fried of 37 Signals on work culture
"Interesting presentation on collaboration and productivity from Jason Fried, CEO of 37signals. It is hard to argue with their the prolific nature of 37signals with production of 5 web applications in under 2 years from a team of 7. I like the parallels he draws between finding the productivity zone and REM sleep, but I don’t think the isolated nature of their corporate culture is for everyone. The concept of making frequent small decisions which are easily reversible VS lengthy large decisions which can be irreversible seems to have some merit as well. Worth a watch especially if you are a small team such as we are at JLOOP."
