SidePocket: Closing Shop

hwms.coverart

You must take the tide at its flood.

That is the sad lesson of organizational leadership.  

You may like your colleagues.  You may like where you work.  You may even like what you do.  

But there are times when you must loose the ropes that bind you to shore and start the journey afresh.

SidePocket: Who is Represented?

Blame the bosses. 

A tried and effective strategy.

And some times, it is actually true.

But grudges can blind our eyes, leaving us with a moment of self satisfaction and not much more.

hwms.coverart

Life is busy.

There’s no time to read. 

Or view YouTube videos.  

Or even listen to podcasts. 

So Maddie, the 8 year old entrepreneur an Bix, the Master Scrum Master, give you a thorough overview of Clayton Christensen’s masterwork, the Innovators Dilemma.  

It is perhaps the most influential business book of our age.  It was the centerpiece of the late Dr. Christensen’s career.  It’s important cultural icon.

And, of course, Bix hasn’t read it.  

And Maddie has read it too well.
