Mauboussin's Talk at Google: The Success Equation: Untangling Skill & Luck

This week, we're posting up the various "Talks at Google" that focus on investing.  These typically feature authors of well known investment books.  Next up is Michael Mauboussin who talked about his book The Success Equation: Untangling Skill and Luck in Business, Sports and Investing.

Mauboussin is well known for his work on the more psychological/behavioral aspects of investing.  We've previously featured his talk about developing an investment process.

His talk touches on the concepts of the roles luck and skill play in success and failure and how you can provide a framework to analyze their contributions.

Embedded below is the video of Mauboussin's talk at Google:
