Google has recently decided to close a few projects they had going. The New York Times has run a good article on how Google decides when to axe a project.  A couple of things I notice: (via Slashdot)

 – Effective planning and goal setting (they know specifically what they hope to accomplish when they set out)
 – Data collection (they don’t make decisions without having the information)
 – Employee input (they release projects to their employees first to try things out)
 – Goals don’t include perfection (they purposefully release incomplete projects in order to gain more data and, during the process, make it better)
