What a Dog and a Monkey Taught Me About Management at Google

During Tomasz Tunguz’s time at Google, his team held weekly meetings at which employees traded stories about their mistakes and followed up with stories about colleagues’ successes. The biggest goof won its perpetrator temporary custody of a stuffed monkey named Whoops, while the biggest success story won a stuffed dog named Duke. “To the individual, it mattered who won Duke and Whoops. But sharing all of the stories, building a community based on shared experience and trust, was far more important and beneficial to the team,” Tunguz writes.
