Fresh ideas

From Fast Company, an interesting team-building idea from Justin Rosenstein and Dustin Moskovitz, heads of the software company Asana: “Instead of dividing time according to fiscal quarters, Asana has ‘episodes,’ which are roughly four-month blocks of time. Before each episode, everyone ‘stops doing normal work’ to sit down for a week-long session to create a roadmap. Committees are formed around different agendas … and members are selected to be on them not solely based on their job description but what they can offer to achieve the goal.”
