Denise Howell blogs from the Harvard Business School Publishing Next Generation Growth Conference, and comments specifically on the Komisar, Zook, Cook and Foster Panel. One quote in particular caught my eye:
Creative Destruction: markets outperform coporations. Long term survival and long term performance are not the same thing. Foster chooses to take an investor return lens. It’s harder to get rid of a business you already have than create a new one. J&J took steps to make the corporation more market-like. Today, Qwest, Global Crossing, Tyco tells us what happens when controls systems are inadequate. Must control what you must rather than what you can. [Bag and Baggage] (emphasis mine)
Denise reports that within spittin’ distance are Dan Gillmor (working his usual magic). Kevin Marks, Robert Scoble and Dave Winer. Good stuff – wish I was there!
