  • "Favorite Subscription"

    Overall

    The Wall Street Journal audio edition provides a good selection of the top business news daily in an unabridged format. My only complaint is the editorial section of the program. Most of the opinions are highly political and always from the Republican perspective. It would be okay if the opinions were more balanced and from both sides. Besides that, it would be nice if there was an extended edition with more stories.

    "Student Case Studies and Research"

    Overall

    I found the HBR very informative, particularly since many of the issues seem to be compilations of the best case studies of MBA students and occasionally a research project of one of the professors. Well researched with ample examples, the HBR presents the latest thinking in business leadership, management, and human relations. The narrator is a true pleasure to listen to and his voice is quite expressive. I would prefer that HBR was published bi-monthly for the same price, but overall a reasonable value.

  • "A great service"

    The WSJ is a great newspaper. The problem is that not a lot of people have the time to sit down and read (much less absorb) the volumes of information delivered in a daily paper the size of the Journal. If reading it isn't part of your job description, it's a difficult thing to accomplish if you have other demands on your time.

    This service goes a long way towards resolving this problem. The daily read gives you the "high points" from the journal, including major stories, major financial news and editorials. The mixture of political vs financial news fluctuates on a day to day basis, but generally there is more financial news then political.

    The financial news covered usually includes large business transactions (or rumors thereof), product releases from major companies, coverage of the stock & bond markets, interest rates, and predictions of the future of the economy. There is also coverage of the affairs of corporate executives, fund managers and other folks who can influence financial markets. Sometimes the stories dive pretty deep into numbers, which can be difficult to keep track of via audio. But hey, it is the WSJ after all.

    The political coverage is generally related to major news stories, geo-political events, budgetary policy, and some amount of "right vs. left" politics. There is also a daily editorial which tends to focus more on political matters. The editorial is my favorite part of the daily read.

    So, if you'd like get the highlights from the WSJ, but don't have time to read it, this is a great service. I've had it for a month, and I'm hooked. The WSJ is now part of my daily commute. There's a certain confidence that comes from having listened to the daily read before I walk into work. The information has already come in handy a couple of times. You might be surprised how often some subject will come up in the office, and you'll be able to throw out some information you picked up from the Journal.

    Businesses hoping to survive over the long term will have to remake themselves into better competitors at least once along the way. These efforts have gone under many banners: total quality management, reengineering, rightsizing, restructuring, cultural change, and turnarounds, to name a few. In almost every case, the goal has been to cope with a new, more challenging market by changing the way business is conducted. In this article, John Kotter outlines the eight largest errors that can doom these efforts.
