Time for the holidays, and it’s always hard to know what to get (or ask for)! There are so many great choices on the market. Here are my thoughts (and yes I use them all personally and LOVE them).

The new Nexus 6. First up, a bigger phone with more everything. Contoured aluminum frame, 6-inch Quad HD display and 13 megapixel camera. Comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop - and a turbocharger. Get 6 hours of battery life from a 15-minute charge!

Chromecast. It just keeps getting better. More apps all the time, available in more countries than ever, and now available for $25. When you’re not casting music or movies, give your TV a new backdrop. Great for art and photos. Big screens are everywhere - use them!

You hear a lot about how important it is to have 'a big idea' in order to innovate. But having a big idea doesn’t mean you also need to invent a brand new space or product category. Markets that are already growing quickly and full of competition may just need a different angle or unique expertise. Why can this work better? Empty markets are often empty for a reason – there just isn’t enough demand to sustain a growing venture.

If you look at many of Google’s successes (think Search, Gmail, Chrome, etc.), you’ll see that they didn’t come from entering brand new spaces. Instead, we found crowded fields and applied unique technical insights, offering something that worked better than what was already out there.

Riyadh Weekend

In a room 2/3 of a football field, two hundred soldiers and palace guards watch with guns while leaders, executives and Princes line up to kiss the hand and the shoulder of the new King and pay their respects in a ritual hundreds of years old.  Three days of mourning followed the death of the beloved King of Saudi Arabia, more properly known as the “Guardian of the two Holy places”, and the palace quickly announced a new King, Crown Prince, and deputy Crown Prince, establishing a clear hierarchy and succession plan after much internal speculation.  Jared and I, in line to offer our respects at the Palace, simply decided to shake the hand of the new rulers, western style.

This was my third trip to Saudi Arabia and eleven years after my first trip in 2004.   Saudi today is well connected with a high percentage of smart phone users (70+%) and very very high use of Youtube along with other social media.  The Internet is everywhere, and in a country that has no movie theaters the Internet has swept through the country with significant impact.  In one of the most conservative countries, I saw modest changes that any of us would welcome.  There is a much greater awareness of the world around Saudi, and tremendous interest and familiarity with things western.

One of the Princes told me that that floggings have no place in the modern image of Saudi, and a number of women said they are freer now to mix and mingle in certain places.  The stark separation is still law and enforced by the religious police, but the walls separating male and female in the rooms I was in are more flexible.  In a country where women cannot drive, they are now allowed to use Uber.  In a country where 70% of the students are female its only a short time before these antiquated and discriminatory rules about women are revised.  The women I met were very strong and courageous, well educated and outspoken, and I suspect the Internet has given them support and way to be heard.  We heard their voices, and they are strong.

Saudis see themselves as builders, and because of their oil wealth have more than $800 billion in banks and even more wealth under the ground.  The late King moved to modernize the society, with careful steps intended to deradicalize some of the teachings, improve economic prosperity for the average Saudi, and increase internal security from terrorism.    In this backdrop, his successors will have much internal pressure keep the modernization in place and expand it.  

Its important we all keep focused on investing in the Internet and freedom of expression, and its important that the Saudis continue to invest in their educational and health systems.  I’m convinced now more than ever that the Internet is a force for good, and you can see it in the faces of the young people and even in their Ministers.___

Davos and the Ties that Bind Us

Davos is a great way to get a sense of the world’s concerns and this Davos, my 17th I think, was no different. The sessions and discussions were dominated by economic growth and security concerns, with politics intertwined. After a few days in the Alpine glow of Davos, its easy to be disheartened by the difficulty of today’s problems.

Even with the late change from the European Central bank increasing the money supply, there is no unified vision of growth for Europe over the next few years. In the revolving discussions deep and dogmatic views are expressed by all sides. The North / South division is substantive, and must be very frustrating to everyone. The lack of a unified European single market is an issue for most of the people I met with, and the process of unification is political, difficult and slow moving.

Davos and the Ties that Bind Us

Davos is a great way to get a sense of the world’s concerns and this Davos, my 17th I think, was no different. The sessions and discussions were dominated by economic growth and security concerns, with politics intertwined. After a few days in the Alpine glow of Davos, its easy to be disheartened by the difficulty of today’s problems.

Even with the late change from the European Central bank increasing the money supply, there is no unified vision of growth for Europe over the next few years. In the revolving discussions deep and dogmatic views are expressed by all sides. The North / South division is substantive, and must be very frustrating to everyone. The lack of a unified European single market is an issue for most of the people I met with, and the process of unification is political, difficult and slow moving.

The situation in Syria is horrific, with more than 300,000 deaths and more than 10 million people displaced or homeless. The human toll, economic toll and political toll is hard to overstate, and in private meetings its clear that the ISIL threat has finally unified most of the players. Consensus on this also takes time, while the civil war and fighting continues.

The security situation in Europe came up many times, with great concern over the aftermath of the Paris tragedy. The political view has now switched, with a number of countries considering deep restrictions on people and also on Internet usage. While the issues are real, the benefits of the Internet are so overwhelming we have to do everything we can to avoid fragmentation, or breaking the Internet into national silos. Economics, culture, and science all depend now on the free flow of information across borders and we should not stop that.

Our view, expressed in public and in private meetings, is that we are at the beginning of a new and magnificent cycle of innovation that will benefit everyone and in every country. Medicine becomes more personal, and far more effective, and people will live longer and better. Transportation will become much much safer, as automation makes a car much more automatic, predictive and less likely to crash or fail. Billions of people will get smart phones for the first time in the developing world, and their education, safety, information and entertainment will improve in a fantastic way. Improvements in artificial intelligence will make all of us smarter in ways even hard for the experts to predict.

Entrepreneurship, and innovation, released on a global scale are the solutions to many of the problems we hear about at Davos every year. Better education and more connectivity make us all more interdependent. This interdependence is the "tie that binds,” and its a good guess that the major predictions from last year (war in the china sea, banking failure, independence of scotland) that did not happen failed because of our mutual interdependence.

The Internet makes the “ties that bind” much much stronger, and we need to keep it open and connected. Those that limit or shut down the Internet are hurting themselves as our interdependence is our greatest reason for economic growth and global peace. By every measure the world is much safer now than it has ever been (remember World War II and the horror of Auschwitz?) and with a more leadership we can get many of our current issues fixed. After all they don’t require new math or new discoveries or physics that don’t exist in our universe. Just a commitment to fixing them.___

Fun read. Certainly agree that microchips, HTML and email are some of the most important disruptions of the past few decades. It’s great to see the smartphone included, but the impact of mobile is actually much greater than that. The ability to reach anyone, anywhere, at any time has fundamentally changed the way and the speed at which people are able to work together across the globe. The smartphone, especially in combination with the internet and cloud computing, expanded and accelerated this process, but the widespread use of mobile networks is an important disruption in and of itself.

#HowGoogleWorks #businessweek85

Business week asked what’s missing from their list of the 85 most disruptive ideas. I’d say the biggest thing is cloud computing. A core tenet of #HowGoogleWorks is how fundamentally the internet, mobile, and the cloud have changed the business landscape. By making near infinite storage and computing power and sophisticated tools available at a low cost, the cloud has paved the way for innovation like few things previously. 

I bet that when the 90th anniversary issue comes out, cloud computing will feature prominently on the list. What else do you think will be included in five years?

When I was ready to publish my book How Google Works earlier this year, I didn't know what I didn't know about social media. I called on my friends +Guy Kawasaki  and +Peg Fitzpatrick  to help me navigate marketing a book with social media and it made a huge difference in our social media launch campaign. How Google Worked was using The Art of Social Media to get the word out to as many people as possible. While I was lucky enough to get personal advice from Guy and Peg, you're just as lucky because they really deliver the goods in a practical, no fluff manner. I'd recommend The Art of Social Media to anyone wanting to build or improve their social media.

Loved this article. What I remember being so impressed with at the time was how little senior management and traditional company hierarchy mattered in all of this. When Larry spotted poorly targeted AdWords ads, he didn’t have to route a message down the chain to the ads people, or wait for a task force to form (in fact, Jonathan and I weren’t even informed until the problem was already solved).

Instead, he knew he could just point out the issue and count on the right people to take care of it because they were as invested in providing a great user experience as he was. That kind of dedication can’t be taught – it comes from having a clear mission, hiring passionate people, and then providing them with the trust and resources they need to do what’s best for the company. #HowGoogleWorks

Loved this article. What I remember being so impressed with at the time was how little senior management and traditional company hierarchy mattered in all of this. When Larry spotted poorly targeted AdWords ads, he didn’t have to route a message down the chain to the ads people, or wait for a task force to form (in fact, Jonathan and I weren’t even informed until the problem was already solved).

A few months ago, I was asked to participate in some discussions on the future of the Olympic Games. Of course, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. I’m a sports fan, but I’m especially an Olympics fan. I was especially excited to see how and where my personal and professional interests, sports and technology, would converge. So my team and I went to Switzerland and joined the International Olympic Committee for working groups with organizers, external experts and other members of the public.

Like any organization, the IOC was eager for an update. At Google, we’re constantly thinking ahead to long-term opportunities and rarely shy away from opportunities to innovate. I was pleased to see the IOC, a more than 100-year-old organization, take the initiative and open itself to fresh ideas as it looked ahead to the year 2020.

I was pleased to see the IOC, a more than 100-year-old organization, take the initiative and open itself to fresh ideas as it looked ahead to the year 2020.

So what did we find? The discussions demonstrated a deep desire to let more people in, not shut people out, and reflect the growing openness and tolerance of a changing society. We talked about everything from ratifying non-discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to reducing costs and making operations more sustainable. And today in Monaco, at the IOC’s 127th session, we saw the full range of those bold ideas approved.

I’m happy to have participated, and very much looking forward to seeing the IOC put its new initiatives into action. It’s an exciting time for technology and the Olympic movement.

In theory, everyone buys into the idea that it should be easy for people to move between teams. But in practice, managers almost always get territorial with top performers and are willing to let their weak links go. It’s similar to kids trading candy after Halloween, where everyone wants to keep their M&Ms and swap their raisins. But top performers are exactly the people you need to encourage to move because they'll add the most value wherever they go and are likely to leave the company entirely if you try to cling to them too tightly.

#HowGoogleWorks

All companies want to attract and retain top talent. But the reality is that smart, talented people learn quickly, get bored easily, and are bombarded by opportunities to go elsewhere. So how do you keep them? Tackling the kind of big challenges that make people feel proud and excited to come to work everyday is one important piece of the puzzle. The other is simpler – make it easy for people to move around within your organization. Doing so is a win-win. The smart creatives get to push themselves and learn something new, and you get to benefit from their energy and expertise.

At Google we encourage this in lots of ways. 20% projects, rotational programs, and the constant moves between teams that go on across the company are all designed to keep people engaged and help them grow. It’s a straightforward tool any company can use give great people a good reason to stick around.

Time for the holidays, and it’s always hard to know what to get (or ask for)! There are so many great choices on the market. Here are my thoughts (and yes I use them all personally and LOVE them).

The new Nexus 6. First up, a bigger phone with more everything. Contoured aluminum frame, 6-inch Quad HD display and 13 megapixel camera. Comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop - and a turbocharger. Get 6 hours of battery life from a 15-minute charge!

Chromecast. It just keeps getting better. More apps all the time, available in more countries than ever, and now available for $25. When you’re not casting music or movies, give your TV a new backdrop. Great for art and photos. Big screens are everywhere - use them!

It’s not for no reason we have seven pages of acknowledgements in How Google Works. It’s true that the book is about what we learned at Google, but what that really means is it’s about what so many people over the years have taught us.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it reminds us to be grateful of the people around us – from family to friends to coworkers. So on that note, I’d like to thank all of you who continue to teach me so much. You inspire me every day - Happy Thanksgiving!

#HowGoogleWorks

One of the core themes of How Google Works is the importance of great people. I can personally attest that the book itself simply wouldn’t have been possible without the help of a large number of them. So in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude.

So many people had a hand in this book. Mentors like Bill Campbell, and Professor Susan Feigenbaum. Smart creatives like +Brian Rakowski +Clay Bavor +Keval Desai +Marissa Mayer and +Cathay Bi My loving and supportive family. And of course everyone who read it and offered their feedback. I feel privileged to have so many smart, talented people in my life and interested in my work, and can’t thank you enough for all that you do.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good read. Humbled by the thought of How Google Works on the same shelf as My Years with General Motors!

#HowGoogleWorks

Thought-provoking piece from +The New Yorker  on the evolution of the business management book over the past half century. It’s beyond flattering to have How Google Works mentioned alongside important tomes like Sloan’s “My Years with General Motors,” and Drucker’s “Concept of the Corporation.” I’m as curious as the author whether the lessons +Eric Schmidt and +Alan Eagle and I learned at Google will still be applicable 50 years from now, or whether new technology and a changed landscape will require a wholly different way of doing things.

What’s your take? What do you think the next business management book on the shelf will say?

Our approach with +Google Chrome  is a classic example. We launched fairly quietly in '08 with little marketing support, and were pleased to see strong adoption and positive user feedback. It wasn’t until Chrome hit 70 million users that we really invested in the marketing behind it. Because Chrome was already on a strong trajectory, we knew the money would be well spent. When deciding where to invest resources, you should look for the products that have earned your support, rather than the ones that need it.

#HowGoogleWorks #google #chrome

Google is famous for its launch and iterate approach to product development. The launch part is pretty straightforward; what’s more complicated is what happens next. Since you can’t afford to iterate on everything, how do you decide where to focus?

The natural tendency is to devote more resources to the products that appear to need some help – improving the user experience and investing in marketing to reach a broader audience. But at Google, we’ve found that to be exactly the wrong approach. Instead, the best thing to do is to find the products that are doing well on their own, and then fuel the fire with marketing and engineering resources.

I’m pleased to share that we’re donating all profits from How Google Works to organizations focused on improving access to computer science education for girls and young minorities, including +Black Girls CODE  , +Girls Who Code  , and +CODE2040  .

The best thing any company can do for itself is hire smart people. But it’s also important to think about the composition of your company as a whole. Hiring too homogeneous a group can leave you open to blind spots, with important issues overlooked and valuable opportunities left unidentified. The best defense against this? Hire people from diverse backgrounds and make sure their voices are heard.

#HowGoogleWorks

The rapid pace of change and steady stream of innovation makes today an exciting time to be in business. But with so much going on, it can be difficult to know where to focus. 

Over the last couple years, my friend +Keval Desai  and I have gathered up a collection of research that we feel does a good job of highlighting important trends and offering interesting perspectives. It’s nothing fancy, but we do update it regularly and try to use a discerning eye when deciding what to include. We also emphasize content that is freely available on the web. If you’re interested in getting a window into what the two of us are thinking and reading, take a look here: https://docs.google.com/document/u/0/d/1PUGp5VrFfRl0f3PUuHxyNSkPbhGcVLnDyj_ybQtEsR8/pub

People are attracted to big goals because they excite and inspire. That’s one of the reasons big ideas can be easier to achieve than small ones. When people are inspired, they’re more likely to join you, give you the resources you need, and stick around when things get tough. So if you’re looking to convince people to join your team, back your cause, or fund your project, make sure you’re dreaming big enough to spark their imaginations.

#HowGoogleWorks

As Astro Teller, the head of Google X, likes to remind people, if you want to build a car that gets 10% better mileage, you just need to tweak the current design. But if you want to build a car that gets 10x better mileage, you need to start over and dream up something new. You may not actually end up with a car that gets 500 miles to a gallon, but let’s say you get part of the way there. By re-imagining how a car could run, you’ll have accomplished something far more significant than you would have had you focused on the incremental goal.

No one can ever predict exactly where their career will take them. The world is changing too quickly to know where you’ll be 20 years down the line. That’s why focusing on your ideal job five years out is such a good approach. It’s close enough to be conceivable and far enough out to help you understand what you’re missing and where you need to improve to get there.

If you’re stumped on how to get from A to B, lean on the people around you. The people who know you well often have a better sense of your strengths and weaknesses than you do and can serve as valuable guides.

#HowGoogleWorks

One of the fun parts of the How Google Works book tour has been the opportunity to talk to younger people about their careers.

Something I always recommend doing is to write the job description for your ideal job in five years. Include all the pertinent details – role, responsibilities, location, salary – everything you would need to know to apply. Then fast forward five years and imagine you’re in that job. What does your resume look like? Write it out so that you have a sense of what you’ll need to do to get to where you want to be.

And if you already feel prepared for the job with the skills and experiences you have today, then you probably aren’t thinking big enough about what you could achieve!

No matter who you are or what level you’re at, there is always something more you can learn or something you can learn to do better. A coach can spot those areas more quickly than you can and give you practical advice and encouragement to help you succeed.

When I first joined Google, I was resistant to the idea of coaching. I had years of experience and was hired as the CEO, so I figured I knew what I was doing. Not only did Google make me realize I still had a lot to learn, but my coach, Bill Campbell, ended up being a tremendous teacher. In fact, one of my biggest self-critiques at the end of the year was not bringing Bill on even earlier to help myself and my management team.

Take it from me – everyone needs a coach. The sooner you find yourself one, the better off you’ll be.

#HowGoogleWorks

What’s one thing that every business person has in common? We could all use a coach. 

A misconception I often run into is that coaching is for those who are struggling, that if you’re doing well, you don’t need help. But if you look at sports, every successful athlete is backed by a talented coach. There, a good coach is a badge of honor, not a sign of weakness. Why? Because no matter how good you are, there’s a limit to how well you can identify your own weak spots. A coach’s job is to observe you in action, catch the things you’re missing, and offer constructive feedback to help you improve.

When we first joined Google, +Eric Schmidt  and I were lucky enough to work with one of the best coaches out there, Bill Campbell. I credit him with helping us re-learn how to manage a successful business, and for shifting my perspective on how useful a coach can be. Even if you feel like you’re already at your best, find yourself a coach who can make you better!

What’s different now? In your industry, what things have changed the way you do business and plan for the future? Leave a comment and let me know.

One of Eric’s favorite questions to periodically ask is “What’s different now?” In How Google Works, we’ve identified three macro trends that we believe are affecting all companies in every field: the internet, mobile, and cloud computing.

In every case, these trends mean that barriers to entry that previously protected incumbents are falling, but this plays out a little differently in each industry. So, I’m curious, what’s different now in other industries? What assumptions do people make that are no longer true? Leave a note in the comments - I’d love to understand what you’re seeing on the ground.

For more on how these trends are shaking things up, read on: http://www.slideshare.net/ericschmidt/how-google-works-final-1___What’s different now? In your industry, what things have changed the way you do business and plan for the future? Leave a comment and let me know.

You hear a lot about how important it is to have 'a big idea' in order to innovate. But having a big idea doesn’t mean you also need to invent a brand new space or product category. Markets that are already growing quickly and full of competition may just need a different angle or unique expertise. Why can this work better? Empty markets are often empty for a reason – there just isn’t enough demand to sustain a growing venture.

If you look at many of Google’s successes (think Search, Gmail, Chrome, etc.), you’ll see that they didn’t come from entering brand new spaces. Instead, we found crowded fields and applied unique technical insights, offering something that worked better than what was already out there.
