Google now has enough history that it’s developed its own style of innovation, which gets carried with its alumni.
In late January, Chris Sacca, former head of special projects for Google, spoke at ASAE & The Center’s Technology Conference in Washington, DC.
[….] We had our conversation this morning, and it was certainly well worth the wait.As a big fan of (and small investor in) Google, I was fascinated by Chris’s insider insights on the drivers of Google’s success, and the company’s approach to innovation. We also talked about Twitter (Chris is an investor and advisor), and some of the other new technologies and endeavors with which he is involved in his post-Google career.
Chris’s closing piece of advice to association leaders, what I describe in the podcast as taking personal responsibility for making innovation happen, is spot on. Pay very close attention to what he has to say, and not just at the end.
