Managing the Hype Cycle by Greg Sattel

Should you believe the hype?

Hype, much like the proverbial soldier’s girlfriend, doesn’t exactly lie, but doesn’t tell the whole truth either.  We’re told our whole world will change, lots of journalists and investment bankers drive expectations further and then we are inevitably disappointed.  Only later, we find that, after all, there really was something to it all along.

Brain Surgery, Corporate Culture & Leadership Consistency by Alicia Arenas
