The Last Word: Google’s Eric Schmidt

Google now produces close to US$30 billion in annual revenues, and its domain is growing well beyond search. The company’s YouTube unit, with some 40 percent of the market for web videos, is generating profits for the first time, and its android operating system hums at the centre of more smartphones than Apple’s iPhone.

Yet the organisation that Schmidt was instrumental in building still depends on hiring and retaining the brightest talent, as well as encouraging deep collaboration and granting substantial creative free space to its teams. In this talk with McKinsey director James Manyika, Schmidt describes Google’s approach to hiring, running meetings, the mobile and data technology trends he sees shaping the coming years, and his views on social issues.
