Eric Schmidt

  • Both Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg came to Google as seasoned Silicon Valley business executives, but over the course of a decade they came to see the wisdom in Coach John Wooden's observation that 'it's what you learn after you know it all that counts'. As they helped grow Google from a young start-up to a global icon, they relearned everything they knew about management. How Google Works is the sum of those experiences distilled into a fun, easy-to-read primer on corporate culture, strategy, talent, decision-making, communication, innovation, and dealing with disruption.

    The authors explain how the confluence of three seismic changes - the internet, mobile, and cloud computing - has shifted the balance of power from companies to consumers. The companies that will thrive in this ever-changing landscape will be the ones that create superior products and attract a new breed of multifaceted employees whom the authors dub 'smart creatives'. The management maxims ('Consensus requires dissension', 'Exile knaves but fight for divas', 'Think 10X, not 10%') are illustrated with previously unreported anecdotes from Google's corporate history.

    'Back in 2010, Eric and I created an internal class for Google managers,' says Rosenberg. 'The class slides all read 'Google confidential' until an employee suggested we uphold the spirit of openness and share them with the world. This book codifies the recipe for our secret sauce: how Google innovates and how it empowers employees to succeed.

  • Bill Campbell played an instrumental role in the growth of several prominent companies, such as Google, Apple, and Intuit, fostering deep relationships with Silicon Valley visionaries, including Steve Jobs, Larry Page, and Eric Schmidt. In addition, this business genius mentored dozens of other important leaders on both coasts, from entrepreneurs to venture capitalists to educators to football players, leaving behind a legacy of growing companies, successful people, respect, friendship, and love after his death in 2016. Leaders at Google for over a decade, Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle experienced firsthand how the man fondly known as Coach Bill built trusting relationships, fostered personal growth-even in those at the pinnacle of their careers-inspired courage, and identified and resolved simmering tensions that inevitably arise in fast-moving environments. To honor their mentor and inspire and teach future generations, they have codified his wisdom in this essential guide.

  • Jamais auparavant dans l'histoire nous n'avons eu autant de pouvoir au bout de nos doigts. Internet, et plus globalement les nouvelles technologies, a renversé l'ordre du monde : une poignée de citoyens peut se mesurer à un État, le temps et l'espace sont abolis, les identités se brouillent entre réel et virtuel, notre vulnérabilité s'accroît.
    Depuis la diplomatie jusqu'à l'aide humanitaire en passant par la lutte contre le terrorisme, les révolutions citoyennes, les dangers du piratage et la préservation de la vie privée, Eric Schmidt et Jared Cohen décrivent ce monde nouveau, aussi fascinant qu'inquiétant, dans lequel nous entrons à peine, sans oublier leurs rencontres avec Henry Kissinger ou encore Julian Assange, leurs visites de terrain entre l'Irak en guerre (où ils se sont rencontrés), la Corée du Nord et la Silicon Valley.
    De cet ouvrage magistral ressort une ode résolument optimiste à la modernité qui, et c'est sa grande force, n'ignore pas sa face sombre. Un portrait passionnant du monde de demain décrit par deux des visionnaires les plus renommés d'Internet.
