Pando: Lessons from the startup graveyard
The startup grim reaper is time. Money buys you time; burn rate takes it away. // & avc - investing money into distribution before MVP/Product/Market Fit (traction, great net promoter score, word of mouth, social media sharing, email sharing, steady self-runner) is a waste. why pour gasoline on a non-existing fire, down the drain, never recoverable, no ROI!?!?

The tragedy behind Amazon’s toxic management fad | Andre Spicer | Comment is free | The Guardian
The ‘rank and yank’ philosophy Amazon uses to manage its own people has failed hundreds of companies, and tarnished hundreds of thousands of lives [...] Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder and chief executive, has repudiated its claims. “The article doesn’t describe the Amazon I know or the caring Amazonians I work with every day,” he said in an email to staff. “But if you know of any stories like those reported, I want you to escalate to HR … our tolerance for any such lack of empathy needs to be zero.” [...] It works by measuring employees on a wide range of metrics, ranking them on the basis of their performance, then splitting them into three groups: a small number of high performers who are lavishly rewarded; a large group of average performers who hold on to their jobs; and a third group of under-performers who are “managed out” of the organisation. This has created a system where, in the words of one ex-employee, “you learn how to diplomatically throw people under the bus”.

You probably don't want to work for Amazon | The Verge
Amazon is known for its cutthroat efficiency and harsh tactics; it's what makes it possible to get a pack of toilet paper delivered to your door in less than 24 hours. But CEO Jeff Bezos' love of precision and data goes far beyond fulfilling orders and undercutting competitors' prices. It permeates every aspect of the workplace. [...] Working at the retail giant's Seattle offices is apparently nothing like showing up to work at an idyllic Silicon Valley campus. // &! on.recode.net/1fhOStC &! on.recode.net/1THgExm - SVers take shots at the NYT's piece vs "_reflexive criticism_" by those who left AMZN. ( flashy offices *false sense of success* leased with money from Venture Capital, companies pushing PR on their A, B, C round like its a major milestone ). Keith Rabois "Awaiting the NYT expose on Kobe Bryant's success or Jordan's. Or any Olympic medalist." &! Josh Elman ["start-ups can] have intense cultures." --- My take, its about the balance of things! // how to nudge to be no asshole

Annual Planning is Killing Your Growth – Try This Plan Instead - First Round Review
use quarterly OKR for people, team wide, department wide, business/company wide // no SWAT analysis. gain advantage and move from a higher level awareness and perspective // [ SAAS ] Especially if you work in the enterprise space where sales cycles can sometimes be very long, it’s tempting to make decisions that make sense within the span of one year but not in the broader context of your business. [...] “If you're wrong about anything in your annual plan, you're probably already too late to fix it.” [...] “Everyone wants to know about the year. It's become the basic unit of comparison across companies. But it shouldn't be.” [...] [ CONTEXT, aspiration, Big Picture for Company and Product (in 3-5 years), a sketch, but also have to be flexible in your approach and the way. stubbornly flexible (balance) ] “It's vital to know what great looks like for your company in the context of your field.”
