Strategy and The Fat Smoker – New podcast episode available now

post # 499 — February 13, 2008 — a Strategy and the Fat Smoker post

The fourth episode of my new podcast series, Strategy and the Fat Smoker, is now live and available for download.

It is dedicated to exploring the themes found in my new book by the same name. Each chapter will be accompanied by an executive summary ebook covering the same material. I encourage you to forward these to friends and associates who may be interested in the topics covered. If you are already a subscriber to my podcast feed, this pdf will be available in your itunes.

Are We In This Together?, the fourth episode in this series, focuses on disparate preferences amongst players within the same firm. All too often, firm-wide strategy assumes firm-wide consensus. However, it is rarely the case that all players within any given firm are team oriented. We will discuss some of the widely held player preferences and prescribe alternatives in dealing with them.


00:37 – Introduction

04:23 – 4 types of individual and firm wide practice preferences

09:00 – Are we in this together?

11:13 – Bridging the gap: organizational strategies managing a broad range of preferences

17:23 – Conclusion
