Culture is what you reward, what you punish
and what you tolerate.
Culture is important because it is what binds the
team together and underpins every important
decision an organisation makes.
It is essential that an organisation determines
what it really values and makes choices that
support these values.
If you can’t write down what is important about
your culture, you can’t preserve it.
Create a scalable interview process.
Interviews should be structured, with a clear rubric
for each section of the interview
Interviewers need training, both on the subject
matter, but also on how to give an interview.
Diverse teams have better outcomes.
Think consciously about culture and codify
what is important, then:
Arrange the organisation to reﬂect the culture
Make technology choices that support the culture
Design hiring processes that select on cultural
attributes as a ﬁrst class citizen
