Jason Fried on collaboration and teams

Post by Ben Edwards

Jason Fried recaps a couple of chapters of his excellent Getting Real book in a short presentation at the Collaborative Technologies Conference. Here are the slides (PDF) so you can follow along. Jason gives a little background on the presentation over at Signal vs. Noise.

If you have seen Jason speak recently or read Getting Real this will likely be a review but I can really appreciate Jason’s message and the manner in which he delivers it. A 15 second recap might look like this: Keep teams small and apart from one another, minimize meetings and make many small decisions as opposed to fewer larger ones.
