Masters Of Scale Podcast Notes
Like most of my notes, these are a work in progress. Some nuggets I’ve appreciated from Reid Hoffman’s Masters Of Scale Podcast.
Episode #1 - Airbnb’s Brian Chesky in Handcrafted
“It’s really hard to get 10 people to love anything. But it’s not really hard if you spend a lot of time with them.” - Brian
They asked for feedback and got a roadmap.
“The roadmap often exists in the minds of the users you’re designing things for.” - Brian
They started asking
“What could we do, not to make this better, but to make you tell everyone about it?
If I say what could we do to make this better, they will say something small.
If I were to say Reed … ‘what would it take for me to design something that you would literally tell every single person you encounter?’” - Brian
Episode #5 - Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg in Lead, Lead Again
“I believe to lead an organization at scale … you have to be as skilled at breaking plan as you are at making them.” - Reid
“Figure out what your system will be later … and do it now.” - Shery
