James R. Stock is a University of South Florida Distinguished University Professor and Frank Harvey Endowed Professor of Marketing. He has interviewed many of the greatest minds in transportation logistics, a practice area we call supply chain management today. He shared those interviews with Chris Barnes to be republished as part of the Supply Chain is Boring program.

In this interview, Stock speaks with James L. Heskett. Heskett is the Baker Foundation Professor Emeritus at Harvard University and holds an MBA and PhD from Stanford University. Heskett is the co-author of seven books and the sole author of an eighth, with some of his most important work being about the connection between the adaptability of corporate culture and financial returns.

In the first part of this three-part series, Stock and Heskett discuss the role that family and extracurricular activities played during his formative years.
