Focusing on your First 10 Systems

Kevin Fishner recently penned an amazing article outlining his playbook of the best mental models and frameworks he leverages as the Chief of Staff of HashiCorp. Kevin argues that optimizing the systems that comprise a businesses' day-to-day operations are just as important as the people that make up the organization.


In this workshop we'll hear directly from Kevin's experience and insights implementing these operating systems at a rapidly scaling business.


Kevin Fishner is currently the Chief of Staff at HashiCorp, where he treats the company like a product. He joined the cloud infrastructure automation company in 2014 as the first business hire, going on to spin up the sales, solutions engineering, account management, and marketing teams. Afterwards, he spent 3 years building the product management and education groups as VP of Product. He's held the Chief of Staff role for the last 18 months.

Kevin graduated from Duke with distinction in Philosophy for his thesis on The Ethics and Political Philosophy of Subconscious Advertising Techniques.
