Defining the real meaning of a corporate role

Via this great guest essay by Lance Glasser on Sramana Mitra's blog.

"Indeed, I have often thought that asking what you should get fired for in a job is a great way to clarify your thinking about what is really important."

"The CFO is not responsible for making revenue every quarter, but if there is a big surprise, fire him. The CTO is not responsible for delivering products every quarter, but if you miss the internet or a similar technical inflection point, fire him.”
