I ran across this Walt Disney illustrated flowchart at The Economist (http://www.economist.com/blogs/graphicdetail/2015/12/graphical-history-disney-films-and-company-walt-created) and can't stop staring at it! The entire Disney empire, as Walt imagined it, diagrammed for us to see how every part of the puzzle fits together and feeds every other piece of the business. Words like "plug" and "feed" and "promote" and "exploits" makes it clear how Disney was thinking of the overall corporate engine and how the parts interact, and staring at it is inspirational and intimidating all at once. I need this as a poster in my office.

"An intricate flow chart drawn by Walt in 1957 (see pop-up) elegantly lays out the firm's component parts and strategy, with films at the centre surrounded by theme parks, merchandise, music, publishing and television."
