The result was the V2MOM (pronounced “V2 mom”), an acronym that stands for vision, values, methods, obstacles, and measures. Benioff says this system has helped keep everyone at the fast-growing company on the same page over the years.
Below are the basic steps of Benioff’s V2MOM system. You can use them to start defining your management process.
