We’ve seen a major tech boom with companies like Facebook, Google, Instagram and Pinterest, taking the industry by storm with major wins. Each offers unique services, but one thing these companies have in common is high productivity among their workers.

Create a culture of autonomy, transparency and openness. If you want your team to produce more and build more, cut out the traditional manager.
