Hi guys, The Fast Track interviewed Rob Roy about his new book, “The Navy SEAL Art of War,” where he outlines how he trains business leaders to use SEAL skills to overhaul departments so that they are staffed by resilient, tough, competitive and smart teams ready to take on any challenge. Pretty interesting.

It's a use case demo of Intuit QuickBase sharing how its customers who used spreadsheets to manage their business processes and projects moved to the QuickBase low-code Platform-as-a-Service to transform their businesses.
