Working against the industry – how Google works
To succeed in the age of technology and the Internet, a company must attract “Smart Creative” employees and create an enabling environment for them to thrive.
That is the view that Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg make in their book “How Google Works”. In this book, Google Executive Chairman Schmidt and Vice President Rosenberg outline what they learned as they built Google into a multi-hundred billion dollar giant.
Thanks to the “Smart Creative” industry theory, Google became the largest company in the world with things “like no other”.
