I have never met Marissa Mayer, but when I read late last night that she has announced her departure from Google to take on the role of CEO at Yahoo, I felt compelled to write about her one more time.
I am a productivity geek, and love reading about executives' working styles. I devour the Andrew Davidson Interview on weekends and have pretty much every GTD-themed book going. Which is why, when I first read about Marissa Mayer's tendencies in 2007 I felt compelled to write about her (four times I have just realised!).
This blog post that I wrote back in 2007 sums up how she works, taken from a Forbes profile of her. Big focus on task lists, email and digital management, and batching. Happy reading:
