I recently spoke to Michael E. Porter, who is the Bishop William Lawrence University Professor at Harvard Business School and the leading authority on competitive strategy. He is the author of 18 books, including Competitive Strategy: Techniques For Analyzing Industries and Competitors, and over 125 articles. Professor Porter is generally recognized as the father of the modern strategy field, as has been identified in a variety of rankings and surveys as the world’s most influential thinker on management and competitiveness. In 2001, Harvard Business School and Harvard University jointly created the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness, dedicated to furthering Professor Porter’s work. You can follow him on Twitter @MichaelEPorter or on Facebook.
In this interview, he talks about how he originally become interested on competition and strategy, the companies that have most impressed him lately, how companies can better manage and support millennials, and more.
