- Concrete Examples
Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson, co-founders of the project management software firm Basecamp, explain how they’ve created a “calm company.” Their unusual ideas include abandoning goal-setting, not planning beyond six weeks at a time, offering a flat salary structure, hiring new employees provisionally at first, making meetings rare, and more. The authors believe that most goals are artificial targets that create unnecessary stress for employees. In this informative, quick and easy read, constructed with short chapters and short sentences, they say they strive only to serve their customers and stay in business.
