How analytical is Google management? Very analytical:
We measure everything, and we systematized every aspect of what’s happening in the company. For example, we introduced a spreadsheet product this week. I’ve already received my hourly updates on the number of people who came in to apply to use the spreadsheet, the number of people who are actually using it, the size of the spreadsheets.
That is remarkably detailed stuff. Is it useful? Good question, but don’t doubt that realtime management is here.
