High Output Management
This is the ur-book on management in a tech company. It’s full of details on how to manage, and how to structure a tech company. Many of the things discussed here directly apply to us at Wave and Shopify and I highly recommend you read it.
- Mission vs functional organizations (deeply affecting how delivery is structured)
- Managerial output measurements (simply what you do and what your reports do. Look for leverage & training)
- Decision making.
- Task-relavant maturity
I found Grove’s writing style difficult to read, but everything he wrote made me think. Good book.
