Video of Jason Fried 37Signals

Jason Fried of 37Signals has an innovative and provocative presentation on work and project management.

While is his focused on the software industry, I think there are many relevant concepts to all companies competing in today's information economy. Here are few take away items:
# Less is more.
# Meetings are useless.
# Working remotely and collaborating is better then being in an office and interrupting each other.
# Break large projects into smaller bits which can be completed quickly.
# Progress feeds morale
# Don’t do specification, wireframing or usability studies.
# Invest in what doesn’t change like speed and customer service.
# Roadmaps and planning are useless.
# Focus on speed rather then perfection.
# Avoid large problems and focus on small problems and simple solutions
