The Elusive Innovative Culture: Lessons from OpenAI Saga

It was hard to miss the headlines and flood of memes focused on the firing, seemingly rehiring, refiring, and rehiring AGAIN of Sam Altman from OpenAI. (And you can't forget the hire from Microsoft tucked in there too).

šŸ™ˆšŸ™‰šŸ™Š If you somehow made it through the week without a play-by-play, the first article linked below does a nice recap of all the action.

But now that the dust is starting to settle, one thing has become very clear. Sam Altman and the team at OpenAI proved the value of a truly innovative culture.

Keep reading to learn how you can take a few of OpenAI's tricks for building an innovative culture and bring them into your company šŸ‘‡šŸ¼.


What can we learn about culture from the #openaidrama 1. The importance of mission- you mught not be chaising #agi like #openai but you can still have a clear and concise mission. 2. Focus more on experience and skillset than degrees and where they cane from. It helps support openly sharing ideas and new thought processes. 3. Truly work cross functionally and make research and innovation a part of your teams DNA and you will become more agile. You can act on ideas quicker and fail fast when needed. Focus on those three things and see what new ideas or ways of thinking arise. #innovation #companyculture #corporate
