7 Engineering Startup Lessons from Netflix

Om Malik, journalist and entrepreneur, put up a slide on his site titled Startups lessons from Netflix where he highlights a presentation from Adrian Cockcroft, previously of Netflix. Adrian highlights 7 startup lessons he learned from his time at Netflix:

  1. Speed wins in the marketplace
  2. Remove friction from product development
  3. High trust, low process, no hand-offs between teams
  4. Freedom and responsibility culture
  5. Don’t do your own undifferentiated heavy lifting
  6. Use simple patterns automated by tooling
  7. Self service cloud makes impossible things instant

Product and engineering-oriented entrepreneurs would do well to read all the slides in Adrian’s Fast Delivery presentation.
