Billy Beane on Achieving Radical Disruptive Change

Issue Overview

For our cover feature for this edition, we spoke to the legendary Oakland Athletics General Manager – Billy Beane. We delve into what can we learn from the environment, people and processes that Billy built at the A’s, an organisation that continues – even now over a decade later – to innovate and find creative solutions allowing the team to punch above its weight.

For our second feature we spent a day with the Royal Ballet. As well as being one of the world’s most prestigious ballet companies, the RB is a world-class centre of excellence and home to some of the most dedicated and focused performers on the planet.

Elsewhere we talk to the incredible, multi Ironman champion Chrissie Wellington, explore new ground in the Nature/Nurture debate with The Sports Gene author David Epstein, and uncover the secrets of ‘flow’, that state of absolute mental focus, with the researcher Steve Kotler.
