Facebook’s business model Facebook’s business model Startups usually succeed because of a single major product or business innovation. Google is unusual in that they succeeded because of two major innovations: their core search product, and their keyword advertising business model.

How to Use Facebook Ads to Get More Quality Leads and Attract More Blog Traffic How to Use Facebook Ads to Get More Quality Leads and Attract More Blog Traffic Are you ready to get more traction out of the new Timeline for Facebook Pages?

Andy Grove Corporate mentoring programs are a charade. The intent behind them is good, but like everything the professionals get a hold of, they turn it into an incredibly complex and counterproductive routine.

January 11, 2012 Joining up the dots In No Straight Lines some of the dot joining I do is based upon how participatory cultures can really enable increased capability in teams and organisations when knowledge is shared intensively. Part of this is achieved through mentoring – in the book I describe the challenge we face in creating more start-ups / more companies and explain the quality of these organisations is not entirely defined by how much capital they raise – it is more defined by how they perceive their business and execute.

I just finished reading one of the most pragmatic and thoughtful books I’ve ever read about building companies (and I’ve read quite a few). It’s called The Advantage: Why Organizational Health Trumps Everything Else in Business . In it, author Patrick Lencioni describes an organization as healthy “when it’s whole, consistent and complete; when its management, operations, strategy and culture fit together and make sense.” Healthy organizations have “minimal politics and confusion, high degrees of morale and productivity, and very low turnover among good employees.” He points out that most organizations are way too focused on being smart, and not nearly focused enough on being healthy. » Six Questions Every Startup Must Answer the awesome culture blog
