Fortune Favors the Resilient
By now, every company is innovative, all top executives are nimble and every industry is in a historic transition. Why, then, develop another magazine for business executives?
One answer is that “history” is a staple of business education. Magazines, cases and analyst commentary are rear-facing indicators. Although that’s helpful, we prefer an active verb for managing organizations in today’s dynamic, always connected and uncertain world.
With ThinkSet, our goal is to decode events from today’s business and corporate headlines with expert advice and big-picture thinking that is worth the most valuable asset you have: TIME.
