Keep the team small. All doers, no talkers. Absolutely no middle managers. All BD via APIs.

Outsource everything that isn’t core. Resist the urge to pick up that last dollar. Founders do Customer Service.

No tasks longer than one week. You have to ship something into live production every week – worst case, two weeks. If you just joined, ship something.

Peer-management. Promise what you’ll do in the coming week on internal Yammer. Deliver – or publicly break your promise – next week.

One person per project. Get help from others, but you and you alone are accountable.

If they can’t ship, release them. Our environment is wrong for them. They should go find someplace where they can thrive. There’s someplace for everyone.
