The Startup Success Podcast

This week Bob and Pat talk with well-respected Silicon Valley strategist Nilofer Merchant about her book, “The New How: Creating Business Solutions Through Collaborative Strategy”.

How can you build a business – large, small or micro – that can compete and succeed in a world where constant change is the norm? Nilofer walks us through the components of the new how, why so many large companies suffer from an air sandwich between goals and execution, murderboards and their uses, and how even the smallest company needs to take conscious charge of their business culture.

  3. The section discussing how a strong analytical toolset of a company doesn’t necessarily help with the innovation process (around 12:15 of the show) was a really useful insight.

    Thanks for the great podcasts.
