«Siate pronti al cambiamento costante.»
Non è mai esistita, prima d’ora, un’azienda come Netflix. E non solo perché ha rivoluzionato l’industria dello spettacolo, o perché è in grado di fatturare miliardi di dollari l’anno, o perché le sue produzioni sono viste da centinaia di milioni di persone in quasi 200 paesi. Quando Reed Hastings ha avviato la sua attività, che nel 1997 consisteva nel vendere e noleggiare dvd per corrispondenza, ha infatti sviluppato principi radicalmente nuovi e controintuitivi: a Netflix, gli stipendi sono sempre più alti dei concorrenti. A Netflix, il punto non è lavorare tanto. A Netflix, i dipendenti non cercano di accontentare il capo. Questa originale cultura della libertà e della responsabilità ha permesso di crescere costantemente e di innovare fino a creare il colosso di oggi. In questo libro per la prima volta Reed Hastings, con l’autrice bestseller Erin Meyer, descrive la geniale filosofia alla base del suo progetto e della sua vita, e narra storie inedite su tentativi, passi falsi ed errori compiuti, offrendo l’affascinante e completa immagine di un sogno che non smette mai di reinventarsi.

Unsurprisingly, it was worth waiting for. First hand message, culture focused, very straightforward - even for values/principles that are controversial and unobvious. To be honest: this is NOT a hand-book. Many of concepts here did apply in Netflix, but for serveral reasons won't apply in other compan Leggi tutto
As a piece of corporate propaganda the book succeeds in being one that aspiring and corporate managers will love to recommend to one another satisfied that they are lapping up the latest in employee empowerment and HR best practices. Anyone else not at that level realizes this for what it is: C-lev Leggi tutto
I've experienced bits and bits of Netflix culture, having been one of their first interns before they had an internship program -- Netflix doesn't want people who need handholding. But it wasn't until this book that I got the whole picture (or context as Netflix calls it) as well as the trial-and-er Leggi tutto
When I have mixed feelings about a book, I give it 3 stars. This was an extremely interesting one, couldn’t stop listening. It was very insightful to understand how companies like Netflix think about their culture. Still, I find the culture described in the book toxic and dangerous because: - it praise Leggi tutto
I was sold on the concept of this book, where a hard-hitting biz author/professor tells the gory behind-the-scenes reality that conflicts with the rosy hindsight bias of the founder/CEO... but sadly no gloves came off whatsoever. And to think I was excited to learn about the inner workings of the st Leggi tutto
This is a great read for managers and leaders of contemporary midsize to large companies in creative industries. Reed Hastings is the cofounder, CEO and chairman of Netflix. No rules: Netflix and the culture of reinvention introduces the Netflix management system; throughout it is juxtaposed to the
Why do great colleagues leave? That’s a question that has been on my mind for quite a while. Every case is different, but if you zoom out a bit it often boils down to one or more of the following: - lacking creative freedom and / or autonomy to do the job in the desired way - inability to improve the d Leggi tutto
I was hoping "No Rules Rules" would provide more unique insights into how Netflix scaled to become the global leader in streaming. This book is more focused on the managerial techniques that Hastings and his team applied through Netflix's history. While interesting at times, many of these ideas were Leggi tutto
YMMV. If you have previously read (as I have) both Radical Candor and The Culture Map (both of which are excellent books which I would highly recommend) as well as Powerful (which I would not recommend) then you will find very few new insights in this book. If you have not, I would recommend that you Leggi tutto
A masterpiece & MUST read. Netflix is a UNIQUE company with a unique business model & philosophy. It's obvious that its overpowering leader Reed Hastings runs & scales his business HIS way. Read this book to learn: - How a business book should be written :) The co-author Erin Meyer adds so much value Leggi tutto
