In the first of a two-part episode, Mike, Brandon, and Dan discuss a recent Harvard Business Review article by Bill Taylor focused on the Netflix business model. They discuss the power of data and big ideas, the need to continually disrupt yourself, and how important culture is to a successful business model.
From Bill Taylor's article on Harvard Business Review -
I’ve been following Netflix since 2005, when I first visited its headquarters in Silicon Valley and interviewed Reed Hastings, its founder and CEO. I don’t think I’ve learned more about strategy, technology, and culture from any other company I’ve studied. It’s a stretch to claim that everything I know about business I learned from watching Netflix, but there’s no doubt that many leaders can see glimpses of the future of competition and innovation by looking at how the company does business.
