The reason behind Netflix’s success – corporate culture (or the lack of it)

Standard practice for corporate success: The bigger the organization, the more red-tape it usually has in order to keep things systematic and people organized.

Netflix provides an exception to this rule, or perhaps the top management had the vision not to follow rules. Eg. They do not track vacation time. Take a peek into Netflix’s employee culture with these slides on Slideshare.

One of the example quotes given on the slides:

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea. -Antoine De Sainte-Exupery

After spending my life complaining about red tape and wondering why employers never seem to be able to trust their talents, am really impressed by what’s shown on these slides.
