We're excited to welcome Gibson Biddle, former VP Product at Netflix, to ProductTank Toronto!
How Netflix Built an Innovative Culture
Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook recently said that the Netflix Culture Deck “may well be the most important document ever to come out of Silicon Valley.” The document has become a cultural manifesto and now has more than 18 million views on SlideShare.
This talk examines what culture means, why it is so important as companies scale, as well as the mechanisms required to make culture a part of everyday life. Gib gives an inside view on the creation of the culture deck, why Netflix shared it so broadly, and why the response was so overwhelming. The intent is to help companies define, edit and live their unique culture.
We’ll close with a few case studies that demonstrate why defining a company culture is so hard, and what this means as you define and evolve your company’s culture.
