  • Experiment
  • Face your fears
  • Kill projects NOT people
  • Your wake is larger than you imagine
  • Take the first risk
  • Make sure your discovery muscle is as strong as your delivery muscle
  • It's all about the team

  • Mix experienced with newbies
  • Hire people who don't fit in. People who are NOT like you
  • One person can make all the difference
  • Keep teams small - Two Pizza Teams
  • Generating Ideas

  • Good ideas come from the bottom
  • Eliminate the bozone layer
  • Don't lose ideas in the corporate pinball machine
  • It is up to the leader to reach down and break the bozone layer
  • Install sentries to listen for ideas
  • Look beyond what is immediately apparent
  • Go with your gut. Just don't bet the farm on it
  • Build prototypes

  • Make sure to circulate ideas widely
  • Remember the golden innovation ratio
  • Clarity - Focus - Never Settle
  • You don't have to change the world to cause disruption
