Facebook VP of Engineering on Solving Hard Things Early

This is a nice article about the importance of start-ups solving hard problems early (spoiler alert: the hard problems are all about people and teams, nothing to do with products or services). Although it’s ostensibly about start-ups, I think every organisation needs to constantly follow these three recommendations. Every year, ask yourself if you’re doing these three things:

  • Build management and organizational structures around the strengths your company needs to succeed.
  • Recognize and plan for the weaknesses that you know are inherent in the structures you pick.
  • Build great habits around communication and decision-making when everyone still knows each other well.
