David Weinberger: “Hire Execs who love your Product”


Weinberger, in extension of a post from Dave Weiner, argues that managers with a passion for the product will be better and more credible leaders than managers with a passion for process.

In reality, the process obsessive type of managers is the vast majority and it is arguable whether the clock on “professionalizing management” can ever be turned back.
One alternative could be however to have the staff actually elect their senior execs. They would come from within the organization and culture most of the time, and experienced long-timers and product passionates would likely have a head start over process types.
