Sunday’s NYT’s column, The Corner Office interviewed Mark Pincus, founder and chief executive of Zynga.

He recounts how he challenged everyone his team to become the CEO of something, anything, but it needs to be meaningful. It was a way of delegating authority and empowering his team and at the same time freeing some of his time to focus on strategic topics.
