    by , 02-15-2012 at 08:52 PM


    You've just been crowned monarch of the Disney Parks in North America. You can change anything you want without regard to budgets or corporate politics. As the benevolent dictator you can command your minions to do your bidding. My question to you is "what exactly is it that you want to do?"

    by , 01-18-2012 at 07:55 PM


    While doing research for Walt and the Promise of Progress City I was struck at the amount of empirical data that Walt and his team collected as part of the creative process. Walt and his team spent a lot of time in the field studying how others did business. From the book:
