The woman behind the Netflix culture doc

Originally published: September 3, 2016

The Netflix culture doc has an almost mythical status. When it first became popularised, it was a fresh way of thinking about corporate culture and individual responsibility.

The Woman Behind the Netflix Culture Docis an interview with Patty McCord on the infamous document, how it came about, and her own thoughts on it. An interesting read.

The Fastcompany piece, She Created Netflix's Culture And It Ultimately Got Her Fired, should probably be read alongside the interview.

If this is all interesting to you, Patty's TED talk, Lessons from a Silicon Valley maverick - new ways of working and collaborating, is a must watch.
