Thu, Dec 18, 2014 -- 8:00 PM The Computer History Museum Presents: 'How Google Works' With Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg

Google Executive Chairman and ex-CEO Eric Schmidt and former SVP of Products Jonathan Rosenberg came to Google over a decade ago as proven technology executives. At the time, the company was already well known for doing things differently. If Eric and Jonathan were going to succeed, they realized they would have to relearn everything they thought they knew about management and business. In their new book "How Google Works," Schmidt and Rosenberg pull back the curtain on the company that has changed the way we work and redefined what it takes to be successful in today's business environment. The authors offer unprecedented access to Google's practices and the philosophies that define its unique culture, values and strategies. The conversation's moderator is someone who knows a bit about how Google works: Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer. She spent 13 years at Google, holding positions including engineer, designer, product manager and executive.
