What key areas of responsibility do you need in your startup?

How did you create an org chart for your startup?

  • There are a multitude of responsibilities within every business; figure out where your skill set sweet spot is, stick with those responsibilities, and find out who to assign the remaining tasks to
  • Always be thinking about and evaluating the ever-changing needs of your business and align the strengths of your people with those needs
  • Have someone looking ahead at the long-term vision of your company who can really integrate that vision in the present. (FYI: this is often the perfect fit for a chief of staff)
  • Have an understanding of where your business is at and where you want it to go before you build your org chart
