They thrive in rapidly changing situations, they make decisions with incomplete information, and they can create some level of order out of chaos. They often feel strangled in bigger organizations.

In a mature company, they’re the ones who implement change despite heavy resistance. They are typically under-appreciated, yet have an enormous impact on a company’s long-term success.
These are the people who execute a repeatable process, ensuring quality and delivery. They touch the customer every day in some way, whether it’s designing a great product or manning the help desk. Producers build their careers by consistently taking on bigger and more challenging assignments.
