This time of year, I often think of having friends over for a nice barbeque in the backyard; a chance to visit and discuss current events while enjoying mouthwatering barbeque chicken, delicious New Jersey corn, and farm-ripe tomatoes.
Over the past ten days or so, many conversations with business friends of mine have included chicken, but not my backyard barbeque version. They all are curious what I think of the big kerfuffle going on about Chick-fil-A. News outlets all over the world are still feasting on this story. It has generated feature articles and Op-Ed pieces by some of the world’s most respected newspapers, magazines, television, and radio stations, including The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Financial Times, the Economist, BusinessWeek, the Times of India, CNN, NBC, NPR, the BBC, and even Al Jazeera.
Well, I was also just asked by Harvard Business Review to join in and offer a view, a different view than the other stories I’ve read. Check out the HBR blog (blogs.hbr.org) if you’re interested, and let me know your thoughts.
Thanks, and bon appétit!
