We celebrate comebacks, like so many other events, because they are rare.  These stories are valuable because, as John Henry Newman observed over 100 years ago, history offers lessons, not rules.”   A turnaround for the times is a company that came back from the brink of oblivion to a level of success that includes a major Hollywood movie – The LEGO Movie – centered on its product.  This article is a not short but it offers lessons (not rules) about how Lego went from the wilderness of a dying company to becoming  “ the Apple of Toys.”    Ask yourself – any learnings for you?
