Description: Shortly after joining toymaker Hasbro (HAS) as a senior executive more than a decade ago, Brian Goldner took his 5-year-old daughter, Brooke, on a tour of headquarters. She wasn’t impressed. “She put her hands on her hips and said, ‘Dad, the way I see it, you don’t have any toys for girls,’?” recalls Goldner, who became chief executive officer in 2008. A lot has changed since.

Questions for discussion:
- How has Hasbro management changed its strategic planning?
- Why is it so critical to produce toys for both boys and girls?
