Failure by Committee
You've probably heard the old expression: "a camel is a horse designed by a committee." Our guest, Ted Finn, lived it. Not with camels, but with footwear. Ted is a serial entrepreneur in that industry. Before starting his current company to bring the power of the internet to the insole, Ted ran a worldwide women's shoe design and manufacturing business. After a string of successful product launches, it seemed the company had the Midas touch. That is, until it designed a shoe by committee. The product failed miserably and so did the re-design. Join us and our guest Ted Finn in a discussion of failure by committee.
