From time to time, I meet with people who work in big companies, and thought the achievement of the company in the past are their own. That is pretty funny. As a CEO, there are many news things that people in other roles don’t think of. And of cause, as a CEO, there are many things need to be learnt on the job, since no university offer CEO lessons in undergraduate.
In the book of The Facebook Effect, there is a chapter called “The CEO” with the subtitle “You should take CEO lessons. ” That was a vivid reflection of how a CEO like Mark has grown. I can tell you, it is not easy.
People – the key element when you reached the certain level of maturity for the organization.
Culture – a word over used, even abused. But it is the core of the company,
Strategy – need a lot of help to get the data ready and presented in a kawayi way to make decisions.
