Tesla and Space X CEO, Elon Musk, has demonstrated undisputed success over the years in almost every project he has undertaken to date. Many of the achievements that made him comparable to Steve Jobs or Henry Ford, have to do with a series of rules to improve productivity.

Four years ago, the carmaker Tesla was preparing to produce 200 units of the Model 3 and Model S/X vehicles. After three weeks of work without the desired result, the South African tycoon decided to send an email to his workers.

In the first place, Musk suggests avoiding long meetings "Excessive meetings are the plague of large companies and almost always get worse over time. Please leave all large meetings, unless you are sure they are providing value to the entire audience, in which case keep them very short."

Secondly, he recommends not to have frequent and unnecessary meetings. "Also eliminate frequent meetings, unless it is an extremely urgent matter. The frequency of meetings should decrease rapidly once the urgent matter is resolved," he explained.

Also, you can leave a meeting if you are not contributing he says."Leave a meeting or leave a call as soon as it is obvious that you are not adding value. It is not rude to leave, it is rude to make someone stay and waste time," he said.

What is more, he suggests not to use jargon. "Don't use acronyms or nonsense words for objects, software or processes. In general, anything that requires an explanation inhibits communication. We don't want people to have to memorize a glossary just to function at Tesla," he said.

Generate direct communication: "Communication must travel the shortest path necessary to get the job done, not through the so-called chain of command. Any manager trying to enforce chain of command communication will soon find themselves working elsewhere," he explained.

Finally, Elon Musk says it is vital to use common sense. "In general, always choose common sense as your guide. If following a 'company rule' is obviously ridiculous in a particular situation, such that it would be a great Dilbert cartoon, then the rule should change," he concluded.
