Google chairman Eric Schmidt and company advisor Jonathan Rosenberg recently sat down with Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist of MSNBC’s Morning Joe to promote their new book, How Google Works. During the brief segment, the two executives talked about Google’s unconventional  approach to projects. Schmidt went on to talk about how in his early days as CEO, another employee moved into his office due to their space being too crowded.

Rosenberg, a former SVP of products for the company discussed how he continuously tried to introduce product plans and Google co-founder Larry Page told him that his plans were “stupid” and recommended that he spend time with the firm’s engineers discussing what they were working on.
