Video: Sydney Finkelstein: Why Smart Executives Fail
Sydney Fikelstein lecture on "Why Smart Executives Fail" at Dartmouth College. Based on his book of the same title. April 5, 2006. (1hr 5mins)
Comments by David Gurteen: This is a brilliant lecture that explains why organizations fail. In my life time I have seen many highly successful IT companies die. IT companies such as Pime Computer, DEC and Wang. Did they not see it coming? Were the executives stupid? No! Sydney Fikelstein explains why!
