John Hagel on the Power of Pull – speaking at the Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley in April 2010
I had mentioned in a previous post today that I have just recently become introduced to the thinking of John Hagel, the co-chairman of Deloitte’s Center for the Edge. From 1984 to 2000, Hagel was a principal at McKinsey, where he was leader of the strategy practice. And he also founded and led McKinsey’s electronic practice from 1993 to 2000. Not a bad CV I’d say.
In the video below, Hagel speaks at the Haas School of Business @ UC Berkeley in April 2010 about his recent book The Power of Pull. He begins his address with the following provocative statement: “The management practices that we’ve been pursuing for decades – and maybe even a century or more – and indeed our institutions – and in particular our business institutions, but all our institutions – are fundamentally broken.“.
With that setup, here’s the video:
