Yahoo! Peanut Butter Manifesto

I love reading the thoughts of a leader like Brad Garlinghouse. Especially a leader willing to state what is obvious yet uncomfortable. Obvious, courageous and still unspoken internally.

If you are in the tech sector and in a leadership position (or aspire to such), please do read the Yahoo! peanut butter manifesto. From ypbm:

We have lost our passion to win. Far too many employees are "phoning"
it in, lacking the passion and commitment to be a part of the solution.


There are three pillars to my plan:

  1. Focus the vision.
  2. Restore accountability and clarity of ownership
  3. Execute a radical reorganization.
