Management Tips

  1. Promise and deliver.
  2. Make sure bad news travels fast.
  3. Writing is thinking.
  4. Practice transparency within your team.
  5. Without a point of view there is no point.
  6. Know your dilithium crystals.
  7. Don’t ask for information or reports unless they help those you ask to do their jobs.
  8. Don’t keep two sets of books.
  9. Showdowns are boring and nobody wins.
  10. Never vote on anything.
  11. When presenting the boss with n alternatives he/she will always choose option n+1.
  12. Nothing is ever decided at a meeting so don’t try.
  13. Work on things that are important not urgent.
  14. Products don’t ship with a list of features you thought you’d do but didn’t.
  15. If you’re interesting someone won’t agree with what you said.

As suggested by Steven Sinofsky on this article.

“Hire and promote first on the basis of integrity; second, motivation; third, capacity; fourth, understanding; fifth, knowledge; and last and least, experience. Without integrity, motivation is dangerous; without motivation, capacity is impotent; without capacity, understanding is limited; without understanding, knowledge is meaningless; without knowledge, experience is blind. Experience is easy to provide and quickly put to good use by people with all the other qualities.”

~Dee Hock, founder of Visa.
