Akamai Technologies' Paul Sagan on leading through adversity

Presented by MIT Sloan School of Management Dean's Innovative Leader Series


Few companies have endured such hardship, or risen to such heights in a brief span of time as Akamai Technologies. Paul Sagan tells how he became the CEO of this young firm, and helped it survive and then flourish despite “unimaginable adversity.”

"I learned that no business is permanent, and no set of managers or employees get a guarantee that things won’t change, that customers won’t defect, and that businesses may not wither or die. "
