Red Teaming: How Your Business Can Conquer the Competition by Challenging Everything by Bryce G Hoffman Book Review

9781101905975Red Teaming: How Your Business Can Conquer the Competition by Challenging Everything by Bryce G Hoffman was published on May 16, 2017. Red Teaming is a revolutionary new way to make critical and contrarian thinking part of the planning process of any organization, allowing companies to stress-test their strategies, flush out hidden threats and missed opportunities and avoid being sandbagged by competitors. Today, most — if not all — established corporations live with the gnawing fear that there is another Uber out there just waiting to disrupt their industry. Red Teaming is the cure for this anxiety. The term was coined by the U.S. Army, which has developed the most comprehensive and effective approach to Red Teaming in the world today in response to the debacles of its recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. However, the roots of Red Teaming run very deep: to the Roman Catholic Church’s “Office of the Devil’s Advocate,” to the Kriegsspiel of the Prussian General Staff and to the secretive AMAN organization, Israel’s Directorate of Military Intelligence.

As Beth Guckenberger shows, amen is more than just a way to punctuate a conversation with the God of the Universe. Amen is a declaration of who God is and who we are in relation to him. It is a moment of submission and worship, Continue reading

35106941Kiss Me, Kill You by Larissa C. Hardesty is a young adult novel that is scheduled to be released on June 12, 2017 by Entangled Publishing, LLC.
