Etsy’s secret to lightspeed innovation—30 innovations a day—and low employee stress
Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014
How does Etsy.com, the rapidly-growing billion dollar online market, deploy more than thirty software improvements each day, in the workplace that is low stress? The future is already here.
Kate Lister’s insight:
Management by Dan Pink’s principles of “autonomy, mastery and purpose” have made all the difference. Developers now “own” their innovations. And instead of big software updates once a month, they make lots of small tweaks every day—keeping the failures, if there are any, smaller and easier to diagnose and fix.
