How to Survive & Thrive in a Large Organization - BigCo

I’ve worked in a lot of large organizations over the years. These are my tips for how to keep from going insane, do your work, and even thrive and have a good time. Check out the videos here.

This is a terrific presentation with a better combination of being insightful, succinct, and practical than any other I’ve seen on the topic. Steve V.

I have a 10 part course at O’Reilly about working in a large organization, a BigCo: Advancing in a large organization requires more than just being good at your job. Many of these skills and practices are not obvious and seldom taught. In teaching some of these practices, this course will help you learn how to better manage your time and relationships, find space to innovate, and take advantage of all the perks and benefits of working at a large company, so that you can not only survive but also thrive in your role.

If you work at a large organization you probably have access to O’Reilly, especially if you’re in a technical role. So, check it out!

Here’s a quick overview of the course and my goals with it:
