We will discuss business books and other resources relevant to startups and small business owners and operators.
Topics of interest will include:
• Industry Analysis
• Lean Startup Methodology
• Competitive Advantage
• Cash Flow
• Data Analytics
This is not an exhaustive list. The format of this group is still taking shape. But the core idea is to understand how to apply these concepts in actual business operations (especially for startups and small-and-medium-sized businesses).
If you're interested in reading about and discussing the concepts above, definitely Join Us!
And we'll create a fantastic business discussion group!
Our 19th meeting is scheduled for March 15 (Mon) at 6:30 pm. We will again be virtual for this one (See details below).
We will cover "Blue Ocean Strategy, Expanded Edition" by W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne. This should serve as a solid follow-up to our previous book, "Grinding It Out".
Last month's book selection, "Grinding It Out" followed Ray Kroc as he expanded the wildly innovative McDonald's business model throughout the nation (and later the world). This month's current selection, "Blue Ocean Strategy" focuses on the creation of innovative business models, as it "presents a systematic approach to making the competition irrelevant". It recommends generating lasting success for your business by pursuing "untapped new market spaces ripe for growth".
So grab a copy of "Blue Ocean Strategy" and send us your RSVP!
