Yin and Yang

Fred Wilson:

If you are stuck between being the scrappy startup you used to be and the highly functioning big company you want to be, look at your product and engineering organizations and make sure they are well balanced and that you have strong leaders in both who work well together. If you don’t see all of those things, think about making some changes to get there.

I been a fan of Fred’s blog and he is a VC blogger that needs no introduction. I think in this post he points out what the key element of building a great startup team. The product and engineering team plays a big part without a doubt but the person leading needs to have the ability to lead otherwise it would just be a snake without its head.
