Small Teams Doing Important Work

Haven't posted for a while, but this manifesto from Seth Godin about how small teams should operate is definitely worth it.

A couple of key ideas....
  • Question premises and strategy.  Don't question goodwill, effort or intent.
  • Yesterday's hierarchy is not nearly as important as today's project structure.
  • And, talk to everyone as if they were your boss, your customer, the founder, your employee. It's all the same.
