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.'

Customer Reviews

Great insight into the inner workings of Google.

Really enjoyed this insight into how Google, one of the world’s most profitable and people-centric customers operates. Before reading the book I was sceptical if any of the learnings and experiences of such a unique company could be applied to others, but I found it a great source of ideas an inspiration in my own experience building products for a UK FTSE 250 company. While I’m sure that Google isn’t as wonderful as the book makes out (as tales from my friends who work their attests), it is a good read nonetheless for anyone interested in Product Management / Product Development / general Corporate Strategy.

Found this very informative and great insight into how Google is run and certainly will make anyone in management relook at how they do and run things.

An excellent read. It’s not step by step guide on how to emulate their success, nor does it pretend to be. What it is, is a good overview of their company culture with lots of thinking points for those who want to attract driven employees and those who want to be known as driven employees

A "business" book that’s fun to read….

I’d like to heap my highest level of praise upon How Google Works, which is that I forgot it was a business book when I was reading it!
