Description

The rules of business are changing. And those rules are being written by some … unlikely characters.

Andrew McAfee is a Principal Research Scientist at the MIT Sloan School of Management and author of a number of books, including The Geek Way. Mary Long caught up with McAfee to discuss how culture shapes companies – and brings about impressive returns along the way. They discuss:


  • The power of “geekiness”

  • How Satya Nadella turned Microsoft around

  • And why Amazon *wants* to see billion-dollar failures.


Tickers discussed: AMZN, MSFT, AAPL, GOOG, META

Host: Mary Long
