Get Things Done – Lessons From Yahoo, Google, Netflix And Meta

Google, Meta, and Netflix are part of a small elite group of innovative and successful tech companies of our time. They have made a name for themselves in business and technology. All these companies are pioneering new technologies, products, and services. 


Google’s search engine is a household name synonymous with finding information online. The mission is to “organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” They are doing a fabulous job on that. However, the future is still determined by Google’s Bard and the competition with OpenAI and Microsoft.


Formerly known as Facebook, Meta is a social media giant connecting billions worldwide. Meta has not only revolutionized the way we communicate and interact with each other, but it has also changed how businesses and brands reach out to their target audience.

Meta’s acquisition of Oculus has given the company an edge in the virtual reality space, and the prospects of the Metaverse are still in the ‘dust’ – but it will be interesting if the future looks like “Ready Player 1”.


Netflix has disrupted the entertainment industry by offering a subscription-based streaming service and investing in original content. How will the competition with HBO and Disney shape the future? That’s a good question.

But what can we learn from them? 

In the following slides, I focused on essential aspects.

Product Management – From Mission to Roadmap

When we are talking about a roadmap in the context of product management, we mean a shared source of truth that outlines the vision, direction, priorities, and progress of a product over time.
It’s a plan of action that aligns the organization around short and long-term goals for the product or project and how they will be achieved.

It is an essential tool for product planning and serves as a communication channel between product management and other stakeholders. Product managers need to understand how to create a product roadmap and how to keep it updated, and keeping it updated with reality is the challenging part.

As Mike said: “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”
Or in other version (popular in the army) – “No plan survives first contact with the enemy.”
That’s why we must invest in keeping it as close as possible to the changing reality.
