Case Studies IDEO

“Stay human,” say IDEO’s innovation practice rules, “scale your organizational environment so that there's room for hot teams to emerge and thrive.” At IDEO, a world's leading new product design firm, building of hot teams starts from the hiring process. "The typical job candidate will be interviewed by more than a dozen of IDEOers before the thumbs-up," writes Tom Kelley.

"The process takes time but it's worth it in the end. You don't get hired at IDEO unless you wow a bunch of us. Those that make it receive a tremendous boost, knowing that a lot of other accomplished people think they're talented and capable. We believe in giving individuals an opportunity to perform. Everyone starts out roughly equal and then is given lots of chances to mess up – and to shine. Newcomers that flourish in our environment are often offered a key role in a new project, or even an opportunity to manage a project. Age and experience aren't factors. You actually get to pick two or three people who will review your work, and IDEOers invariably pick team members. An since we live for projects, there's an opportunity to spread the work around.”  >>>
