For Impact Ideas | | Tom Suddes

Google tech star Marissa Mayer has been named CEO of Yahoo. (Good luck.)

FAST COMPANY put up a blog yesterday from an article (February 2008) on her Principles of Innovation.

Here’s the article. And here are her 9 Principles… many of which you can put into play TODAY.

    1. Innovation, not instant perfection.
    2. Ideas come from everywhere.
    3. A license to pursue your dreams.
    4. Morph projects, don’t kill them.
    5. Share as much information as you can.
    6. Users, Users, Users.
    7. Data is apolitical.
    8. Creativity loves constraints.
    9. You’re brilliant? We’re hiring.

Nice, tight article that will give you much food for thought. Eat well.
