Disney business strategy chart, 1957

Posted to Network Visualization  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

This is Walt Disney’s corporate strategy from 1957. The theatrical films serve as a foundation, and everything else — TV, music, Disneyland, etc — feed off of and back into the Disney universe. I like how each little Mickey Mouse runs in the direction of the arrow he is on and holds something unique to the place he’s running to.
