Carnival of the Capitalist is up And there are some very interesting entries.
Lead and Gold has a great point on how Jack Welsh has to break GE to drag it kicking and screaming into the 20th Century.
Talking Story has a great little article on the Daily 5 Minutes that is something I want to start doing. The best thing is that with only 5 minutes there's no time to beat around the bush. This is part 2.
Gautam Ghosh makes some fine points on corporate training. Like most bureaucracies they don't know what they are doing.
JSLogan is one I have to disagree with. Failure is always an option, because you can't control outside forces but you can and must change the name of the game if you do want to survive. Instead of retreating you "advance in another direction" Just look at business history many of the the companies that still exist today are doing quite different work from what they started with. Look at GM they started with cars, then they would a loan company and now they are a benefits management company. Having a backup plan that you can implement means more confidence, because you do have a fall back position, you are working from a position of strength not desperation. Desperate people make stupid errors.
