We Read It So You Don’t Have To: Imagineers of War

hwms.coverart Was the Internet designed to withstand a nuclear attack? Common story. Is it true? Rohit and Penelope Othmar explore the origins of the Internet when they review the book Imagineers of War by Sharon Weinberger, a book that discusses the history of ARPA, the Advanced Research Projects Agency.    The answer is not as straightforward as we might like. Featuring:

A CEO Prepares for Her Board

hwms.coverart Ok. Maddie is a bit unusual in the world of CEOs but she still needs to be ready for the politics of her Board. They’re not going to agree with her just because she has a clever tech idea and good presentation. You have to be ready. You have to think. [17218] Cast:

The Agile Board

hwms.coverart Agility begins at home. Or more to the point, it begins with the board. Too often, companies are organized conventionally and then the CEO tries to make the Agile by applying various tricks and procedures. As Vinny argues in today’s episode, you really need to start at the top, think of the company as a whole, and start by understanding the claims and obligations of all parties. It is a little crazy, we do admit, to build a company for an 8-year-old Entrepreneur. But it is not crazy to ask how your CEO will grow into the leadership demands of the organization. [17135] Cast:

All to entertain you for a moment.  

All to help you understand the truth.
