Tomasz Tunguz starts our week with a post about organizational design in startups. Most companies will evolve over time, so there is some good information in this post. At Groove, they talk about how your best employees will quit and what you can do about it. Typically, your very good employees are constantly bombarded with requests from recruiters and some of those request will be really good opportunities. So, take some time to plan around that idea. GitLab has an excellent post on shifting objectives as opposed to delaying releases. This concept can be really useful in SaaS startups where getting some set of features out quickly is useful, but sometimes one or two things just aren’t ready. Product development typically follows the same ideas, but might have some more strict requirements about certain features making the cut.
As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
