I decided to initiate a week blog post routine that will highlight what I believe to be the 5 most interesting blog posts of the week. The area of focus will be the business and strategy arena while the subject matters will be insights, analysis of current events, or interviews of interest.
While I’m not going into depth about the finds, I do encourage you check them out if they sound interesting. The photo in the post is my favorite for the week from Flickr.
This week’s findings:
- 6 Real Competitive Advantages That No Other Company Can Copy – Should you be concerned about someone copying your awesome business idea?
- ‘Buy one, donate one’ effort lets kids direct the giving – “Buy one, give one” initiatives are increasingly common forms of corporate generosity, but it wasn’t until recently that we began seeing them involving children.
- How Tribal Leadership Can Help Build Innovation Cultures – If you’re not familiar with Tribal Leadership†, it’s a book by Dave Logan, John King and Halee Fischer-Wright that summarizes 10 years of their experiences in working to help organizations and offers some patterns and categories used to define various levels of leadership.
- How VCs Calculate Valuation (And How It’s Different From The Way Founders Do It) – Understanding how VCs and entrepreneurs often see valuation differently.
- iPad Fuels Magazine Disruption – While some publishers eye the Apple iPad hopefully as way of migrating the print experience into a rich, multimedia domain as never before, others are already leaping over paper entirely to reach new readers with original digital publications.
