He also enforced a system that entailed a 30-day prototype cycle to rapidly test and modify new technologies consistently. Doing this enabled him to give each team the responsibility to create and develop new product ideas at a fast yet very consistent pace. By breaking his employees into smaller teams, he was able to accomplish relieving some stress as well as some of the duties he was obligated to at that time. Since Verizon became known as one of the most face paced places to work, the positions there become very high in demand.
