David, I love the blog and keep the books coming! I worked for a great company, Matsushita Electric (Panasonic), during the 80s and 90s, and I recall being shocked when I learned that the company operated with a 200 year plan. This was unheard of given the challenges that many companies had and still have planning and living quarter to quarter.

It seemed ridiculous at the time, but I eventually recognized that that long-range perspective provided vision and direction for boom times and tough times. I was proud to play a small part in helping refresh the vision. This was and I hope still is a Tuned-In company.

Kudos to Wiley for their longevity, their vision and their being so well tuned-in. Regards-Art Petty

David, It's great read about Wiley and its longevity. I'm amazed that the company has been around for 200 years and is still tuned in to its customers and market. I don't know much about Wiley, but they no-doubt had great leaders over the years who put their pride aside and made decisions that helped their customers (both authors and readers) for the long-term. Hats off to those who really get it! Michael

David - this is a great post. Even if we won't be around for 200 years, it is a great chellenge to think about what could make it happen.
