How the McDonald's model revolutionised business

Graham Watson

5th February 2020

"What Henry Ford had done for cars, the McDonald brothers did for hamburgers and French fries: they broke down processes into simple, repetitive tasks."

A fascinating insight into the sort of innovation that has revolutionised a small sector of the economy.

This Tim Harford piece on the BBC website looks at the rise of McDonald's and the elements that led it to becoming a global giant. Essential reading for Business Management students; just good reading for all post-16 economists because it's such a well-known brand, and its business model was so radical.
