Parasole Group and cycling

Three successful restaurant openings in the midst of a down economy. Could be an interesting way to look at cycling concepts. Could invite guest speaker to last class and or/cater food.

Strategic inflection points, Andy Grove and AOL/Time Warner

A quote from Tom Friedman NYT column 1 11 10:

"Andy Grove, co-founder of Intel, liked to say that companies come to "strategic inflection points," where the fundamentals of a business change and they either make the hard decision to invest in a down cycle and take a more promising trajectory or do nothing and wither."

An example of cycling. The AOL/Time Warner merger was a big bet around the internet. Right idea, bad execution. Not much hedging.
