Key takeaways:

  • Flattening hierarchies and empowering individuals to self-manage can lead to better results and increased satisfaction.
  • Culture is defined by behaviours, not perks or rewards, and it is crucial for driving agency growth.
  • Maintaining a strong culture as an agency grows requires creating smaller pods.
  • Fostering a sense of ownership and collaboration is key to creating a positive agency culture.
  • Self-managed teams can be highly efficient and productive, especially in smaller groups.
  • Wastage in agencies can be reduced by improving scope and aligning with clients.
  • Productive flow, or uninterrupted time for deep work, is crucial for maximizing productivity.
