How to Write a Mission Statement That Doesn't Suck
 
03:52
I want to show you why most mission statements are so terrible. Let's say you founded a pizza parlor. And your first idea for a mission statement is something like this: "Our mission is to serve the tastiest damn pizza in Wake County." That's pretty good. If I worked for you, I could get excited about that. Now here's how it will go off the rails.

Steve Jobs' Advice to Nike: Get Rid of the Crappy Stuff [Video]
 
01:15
Apple CEO Steve Jobs is among the greatest innovators of our time. And yet his genius for understanding business is rarely explained in any public way. Rarer still is to hear the advice he would give to the CEO of another hugely successful company: Nike. But that's exactly what you'll learn from this video, in which Nike president and CEO Mark Parker tells about the advice that Jobs gave him shortly after the release of the Nike+ product line. It's a simple bit of wisdom that any entrepreneur can relate to: "Get rid of the crappy stuff." Easy to say, hard to do.

ParaNorman, Behind The Scenes
 
03:24
Travis Knight makes his living playing with dolls. Knight is the president and CEO of Laika, the animation studio famous for creating the stop-motion movies Coraline and ParaNorman (which comes out on DVD and Blu-ray today). This past summer we talked with him about how pushing the boundaries of stop-motion animation had also transformed his business. Toiling away alone on a small curtained off set on his scenes---pose, shoot a frame, pose, shoot and so on---forced him to "see the minutiae and the big stuff." As an animator, he says, "you focus on one frame and then back up and see where it fits in the whole film." As CEO, when he backs up, he's thinking about the whole company, about 350 people on each movie and 150 more on the administrative and commercial (ad) side year-round. He's asking which movie ideas are worth the risk of the lengthy stop-motion production process. ParaNorman took three years, the shoot alone 18 months. Fast Company returned in the fall to get a first-hand look at how Knight balances his creativity--he made 15,000 frames himself, almost 10 percent of the movie--with managing a business. As well as the lessons other businesses might learn from the way he's taken an old craft and combined it with the latest technology to create something altogether new. "There's some incredible vitality in this art form. It's not kind of this creaky old thing from a bygone age," Knight says. "Infusing craft with technology gives us something visually that we've never seen before." See for yourself in this episode of Innovation Agents.
