    Strategy Skills Podcast 103: The secretive world of Samsung, the South Korean Tech Giant. With Geoffrey Cain
    Access advanced training episodes: http://www.firmsconsulting.com/promo
    An explosive expose of Samsung, one of the biggest and most secretive companies in the world, as the Korean juggernaut battles Apple and Sony to dominate the world of technology. Seen for decades in tech circles as a fast follower rather than an innovation leader, Samsung today has grown to become a market leader in the United States and around the globe. They have captured one quarter of the smartphone market and have been pushing the envelope on every front. In SAMSUNG RISING: The Inside Story of the South Korean Giant that Set Out to Beat Apple and Conquer Tech, Geoffrey Cain offers a penetrating look behind the curtains of the biggest company nobody in America knows. Forty years ago, Samsung was a rickety Korean agricultural conglomerate that produced sugar, paper, and fertilizer, located in a backward country with a third-world economy. However, with the rise of the PC revolution, Chairman Lee Byung-chul began a bold experiment: to make Samsung a major supplier of computer chips. The multimillion-dollar plan was incredibly risky but Lee, wowed by a young Steve Jobs, who sat down with the Chairman to offer his advice, became obsessed with creating a tech empire. In SAMSUNG RISING, readers follow behind the scenes as the company fought its way to the top of tech. Today, Samsung employs over 300,000 people (compared to Apple’s 80,000 and Google’s 48,000). The company’s revenues have grown more than forty times from that of 1987 and make up more than 20 percent of South Korea’s exports. It is also one of Apple’s chief suppliers of technology critical to the iPhone, while its own Galaxy phone outsells the iPhone. Yet their disastrous recall of the Galaxy Note 7, with numerous reports of phones spontaneously bursting into flames, reveals the dangers of the company’s headlong attempt to overtake Apple at any cost.

    102: Current crisis = golden opportunity to transform your life

    102: Current crisis = golden opportunity to transform your life

    Our clients are often facing crises and catastrophes somewhere in the world. From virus outbreaks to earthquakes, wildfire evacuations and more. And they write to us about their immediate plans to manage the situation. What we find is that they almost always take actions that damage their careers and hurt their lives. They let external factors, the media narrative and their social network influence them to make poor choices that handicap their lives. Often severely.
    They don't realize that the biggest, fastest and most sustainable way to transform one’s life and career is to leverage a crisis. Don't run from a crisis. Run into a crisis.
    This is a short episode released on Strategy Skills iTunes channel and YouTube which includes an overview of the full program we released for FC Insiders (StrategyTraining.com/Strategy Training apps).

The podcast I didn’t know I needed

As an older undergraduate student and operations manager, I am finding value in every podcast here so far and in the entire series on the Case Interviews podcast. Today I cited “The Organizational Design Stream” in a discussion assignment for a class. At work I have been more cognizant of how I communicate to get my message across in a concise and more effective manner. Thank you Michael and FC team!

Top Flight Strategy Training

For someone who is interested in corporate strategy either as a current consultant or headed in that direction; this is the very best podcast I've found to learn strategy. The training comes from former MBB partners with real in the trenches experience coupled with real business cases. Not some fancy theory. Firmsconsulting's products/services are high value and high integrity, great work here again.
