Ranges is a client well being firm targeted on glucose monitoring and so they run themselves in a really deliberate method, largely asynchronous and totally distant from what I perceive. Ranges publishes a whole lot of how they work and the above assembly information is a superb overview of system-thinking. Not all of it’s going to essentially be the appropriate match in your org, but it surely’ll actually produce some concepts

2. Powerful Love by Jared Hecht (Fundera and GroupMe cofounder)
