Bozo explosion

<a href=”http://blog.guykawasaki.com/&#8221;x.jpgGreat article from Guy Kawasaki on how to prevent a bozo explosion at your company. My favorite excerpt:

Diversify. Some companies look like the corporate version of the Stepford Wives: people are too similar. For example, everyone has a PhD. Everyone grew up in a white, upper-middleclass family. Everyone went to an Ivy League school. It’s a bunch of Me and Mini-Mes. When this happens, it means that form is overruling function, and the way people succeed is by representing the right form, not excelling at the right function. That’s back asswards.

Lots more great insights. Definitely recommended reading.

    Reminds me of a quote I saw over the weekend – “If the two people running a company always agree, one of them is superfluous”.
