Who Wants to Get Hit by a Bus, Anyway?
Fred had an accurate if somewhat morbid posting today about succession planning, one of the many higher-order HR tasks that small entrepreneurial companies are particularly bad at. He’s completely right — for one example in our industry, you only have to look back about 9 months or so to Phil Goldman’s shocking death to see the impact it had on Mailblocks. I’ll have to post on succession planning in a startup in more detail sometime soon.
