Larry Page, CEO of Google

“I live by the gospel of x10. Most companies would be happy to improve a product by 10 percent. Not me. I expect my employees to create products and services that are 10 times better than the competition. I’m not satisfied with discovering a couple of hidden efficiencies or tweaking code to achieve modest gains. x10 improvement requires rethinking problems entirely, exploring the edges of what’s technically possible, and having a lot more fun in the process”

  1. It is not often that I have difficulty in escaping a/my CVS. However some CVS’s prove more difficult in arriving at the optimum BVS. Therefore on occcasion the new BVS becomes the new CVS that again requires an additional BVS to be found that provides a better or more suitable escape to the original CVS. I find in these situations that you have to persist with your thinking about thinking over an extended period (could be minutes/hours/days) hopping through multiple BVS’s until you find the one that works. Therefore is the current CVS I am trying to escape from that I should always expect to find the right BVS at the first attempt?

  2. my CVS is that its monday and here i am doing pretty much the same thing as last monday. how about shaking up the week and having those regular meetings at different times across different mediums or in different places and inject different topics. During team meeting today i emailed a joke to all and checked at the end if anyone had read it – they all had and had to go on mute whilst they chuckled

  3. My previous post still holds & I need to escape from the CVS I currently hold. What if economic opportunity abounds? What can Australia exchange with countries in our region? The countries of the Indian Ocean Rim for example. What is the need in these countries?

  4. My cvs views constraints as drivers of decisions (particularly resources) so they can become blockers to escape the cvs. So even if i cant x10 money or time i need to look at where else x10 can help to “go around” constraints (find a bvs) rather then meeting them head on

  5. I needed to escape by multiple of ideas in my current work opportunity so as to create batter company for a lot of business in my locality not get into problems as an individual income and for the batter side of the opportunity which will bring good success.

  6. ‘There is a lack of economic opportunity’. Or so it seems. I need to start playing with ideas – what the e-mail called ‘Google Time’. I may find opportunities everywhere If I’m able to escape from my CVS!
