What CIOs Can Learn from Magic Johnson
Dave Finnegan on what CIOs can learn from an NBA legend.
"I call it the 'Magic Johnson Principle.' When I was a kid I loved to go to Lakers' games—and what I loved about it is he didn't score the most points. He had the most assists.

When they play, everybody plays better together." — Dave Finnegan, Chief Information & Interactive Officer, Build-A-Bear Workshop
