Topic: 4) A Random Walk
This link gets credit from Paul Brown, a friend, my former boss, and founder and CEO of FiveSight Technologies. Now I've known a number of early- and growth-phase companies that have adopted foosball (table soccer) tables. On the one hand, foosball does help to build company culture and get team sprit up. Foosball also can also get the blood rushing before important business meetings where competitive drive and hunger play a big part.
That said, if your employees play foosball at this level and better than they can articulate learnings about the sales process or where the company is at maturity-wise ... well you'd better watch operations more closely! ;)
