Meetings at Walmart


I am almost through with the book.

A tidbit from the last chapter I’ve read is how they conduct meetings. There’s much about meetings in the book, but I like this part in particular: In the end they are pushing for a decision. No “we’ll think about it” or “let’s schedule a follow up”. No no. Decide and implement.

By the way I highlight so much in this book.. it’s almost entirely highlighted. Also: Reading about Walmart is like reading about Amazon. Very similar ways of doing things. Especially interesting for me: His musings how computers and tech changed their business and allowed them to do what they do better and cheaper. It’s great to read about their technological transition in the 1970s and 1980s.
