Doing the rounds across the internets this week has been Valve’s Employee Handbook, a master class in Doing It Right.

Billed as a ‘fearless adventure in knowing what to do when no one’s there telling you what to do’, it details life in a company that could only ever be staffed by software developers: desks on wheels, self-organising teams, the often spoken-of but rarely achieved ‘flat structure’ – it all sounds too good to be true.

Puts Broadsheet’s manual (written on the back of a damp beermat) in the ha’penny place.
