This is an article from CNN.com about the death of
newspapers. Again, I remind you not to study the dying, study the living. You should not interview the past in order to create a future strategy. Instead, study mavericks. In the book Maverick's At Work: Why the Most Original Minds in Business Win , the authors studied different industries and realized that maverick leaders really do lead. They are so far in front that the only guidance for them is their internal value system.
Study people who are doing innovative things. Locally, start with Rex Hammock, Dave Delaney and Morgan Levy.
I'm working on getting them as guest speakers as well.
