フェイスブックCEOザッカーバーグから株主への手紙

ついにというか、いよいよというか、フェイスブックが1日、IPOを申請。米証券取引委員会へ提出した申請書類には、事業内容等とともに、この若きCEOからの手紙が添付されており、様々なニュースでも取り上げられていた(原文はコチラ、日本語訳はコチラ)。

使命感に満ち、高らかに謳いあげたその手紙の中でも、とくに、最後に掲げられた5つのコア・バリューは印象深い。1. Focus on Impact, 2. Move Fast, 3. Be Bold, 4. Be Open, 5. Build Social Value。とくに、"focus on solving the most important problems", "move fast and break things", "make bold decisions", そして "focus every day on how to build real value for the world" といった内容は、フェイスブック社員、そしてビジネスパーソン全般に限らず、学者・研究者・そしてそのタマゴにとっても感じ入るものだと思う。がんばろ。

The examples above all relate to engineering, but we have distilled these principles into five core values for how we run Facebook:

Focus on Impact
If we want to have the biggest impact, the best way to do this is to make sure we always focus on solving the most important problems. It sounds simple, but we think most companies do this poorly and waste a lot of time. We expect everyone at Facebook to be good at finding the biggest problems to work on.

Move Fast
Moving fast enables us to build more things and learn faster. However, as most companies grow, they slow down too much because they’re more afraid of making mistakes than they are of losing opportunities by moving too slowly. We have a saying: “Move fast and break things.” The idea is that if you never break anything, you’re probably not moving fast enough.

Be Bold
Building great things means taking risks. This can be scary and prevents most companies from doing the bold things they should. However, in a world that’s changing so quickly, you’re guaranteed to fail if you don’t take any risks. We have another saying: “The riskiest thing is to take no risks.” We encourage everyone to make bold decisions, even if that means being wrong some of the time.

Be Open
We believe that a more open world is a better world because people with more information can make better decisions and have a greater impact. That goes for running our company as well. We work hard to make sure everyone at Facebook has access to as much information as possible about every part of the company so they can make the best decisions and have the greatest impact.

Build Social Value
Once again, Facebook exists to make the world more open and connected, and not just to build a company. We expect everyone at Facebook to focus every day on how to build real value for the world in everything they do.

Thanks for taking the time to read this letter. We believe that we have an opportunity to have an important impact on the world and build a lasting company in the process. I look forward to building something great together.
