Goodbye Sony

Sony, Kodak, Dell, HP, SAS, Panasonic, Microsoft……All great firms – or rather former great firms. Today they are all struggeling to adapt to quickly changing (disrupted) marketplaces.

I just came across this article laying out another great examples of how “great firms go bad”. Read Sayonara Sony: How Industrial, MBA-Style Leadership Killed a Once Great Company. Also recommended to check out the author’s, Adam Hartung’s, blog.

Goodbye Sony

#Makeitcount: #Piratethinking at its finest

#Makeitcount; a perfect example of #Piratethinking.
Hired by Nike to make another Ad movie, Youtube filmmaker Casey Neistad and buddy Max, took the money and fled. Around the world. They managed ten days, 16 cities and 13 countries before the money ran out. And that became the movie… #piratethinking.

Here, Mashable explains:
“Casey Neistat tricked Nike.

The sporting giant hired the film director and editor Max Joseph to create a commercial for the Nike FuelBand featuring the slogan “Make It Count.” But at the last minute, the duo strayed from the agreed-upon spot, and set off on a journey around the world using Nike’s money and advice to “Make It Count.”

“The ‘Make It Count’ film was the third film I was to make for Nike and at the last minute I thought, ‘If I could do anything in the world and make it count what would I do?’” Neistat told CNN.

It took 10 days to use up Nike’s cash. Neistat and Joseph traveled 34,000 miles, visiting 16 cities in 13 countries on three continents. The result is a four-and-a-half-minute film, which still features Nike’s “Make It Count” branding.

Neistat says they shot enough footage for 10 feature films. He also uploaded an album of still shots to Facebook.

The film has been viewed more than one and a half million times on YouTube in less than three days.

Nike, needless to say, has been pleasantly surprised with the film’s viral reach”.

Says Casey; “As a director I have the greatest job in the world,” he says, “but if I don’t push the boundaries, then what’s the point of having it?” Are you pushing your boundaries? As much as you could? As much as you should?
