Last week’s issue of Knowledge@Wharton (my current employer) featured a pretty cool interview with Charles Geschke, one of the co-founders of Adobe. There’s a lot of great content, from stories about Steve Jobs and the beginning of Adobe, and the story of how they dealt with a hostile takeover attempt from Quark.
One of things I found was interesting was the inclusion of an internal document that outlined Adobe’s corporate values. It was a pretty interesting window into their overall philosophy, and a clear sign that as a company they are discouraged from wasting people’s times in meetings.
