IE Silicon Valley tour: 2) Innovation at YouTube
The first company on-site visit we planned was (guess where?) at the Google's headquarters in Mountain View.
After breakfast and a guided tour of the facilities (yes, with tour-guides...), we assembled a few company presentations. The overall topic was "how to preserve innovation".
Here's the presentation from my good friend Luis Garcia, international product manager at You Tube.
Luis had a very interactive presentation, to his words, using the group as beta-testers...
YouTube is probably one of the most amazing examples of a perfect-timing innovation whose deep disruptions are still to be fully witnessed.
Here's Luis's presentation:
