Malcolm Gladwell and Spaghetti Sauce

Examples of changes in the food industry through discovery of human variability

By William Sandman

Malcolm Gladwell has written many books and showed the world that tastes, trends and the way companies interact with products may be more complicated than we thought.  In this lecture, Mr. Gladwell shows us how a new direction and acceptance of human diversity can open up new business development and market share in places companies never thought to look.  As executives, being open to understanding not just how your best product will do in the market, but what your customers want might allow for new and entrepreneurial growth.  In addition, accepting the differences and unique aspects of your work force might allow for some of your employees to make contribution where you and they might not have expected.  Enjoy the lecture and embrace the differences in your market segment and employee base.
