Good but more frequency please!
I really enjoy this podcast. It's similar to How I Built This but covers a much longer time period. So instead of covering one innovation, it shows how an industry is continually being disrupted over the decades. Only thing I wish for is that they come out with more episodes, like How I Built This which is every Sunday night.
"All of this has happened before..."
Inspiring look at disruption - fertile source of perspective on how we can thrive in the era of digital transformation.
Great real world example of digital disruptions
I never knew the significance of Jaws on the entertainment industry. How about a sequel with Henry Winkler and cover what happens when you don't "truly" disrupt yourself, program or business model but instead make changes around the legacy model. Then it's too late and in a last ditch effort you'll try anything.....And the term "Jump the Shark" was coined.
