The 7 pillars of Netflix Culture
Generally speaking I am not very good with sitting through long presentations, certainly not one that is 126 slides long. But this was riveting. Why?
Simply because it is so precise, therefore effective and efficient.
Yes it is 126 slides long but the lessons contained is such that you could probably read at least 10 Management books, go through a couple of extensive management trainings with special emphasis on strategic thinking and still fail to grasp or condense all the points that are so precisely formulated here.
Netflix has obviously spent quite a bit of time and effort in putting together this ‘bible’ for their organization. In fact this could very well be a road map that can be adapted and adopted for MOST organizations.
A snapshot of the Seven Aspects of Netflix Culture & their corresponding bullet points are:
1. Values are what they value – Judgement, communication, impact, curiosity, innovation, courage, passion, honesty, selflessness.
2. High Performance
3. Freedom & Responsibility
4. Context, not Control
5. Highly Aligned, Loosely Coupled
6. Pay Top of Market
