Here's a list of the most popular items we've published at from the month of October. Topping the list this month is a chapter from Jon Kinzenbaw's book, Fifty Years of Disruptive Innovation. The excerpt from the Kinzenbaw book shares his story behind John Deere's effort to squeeze Kinze Manufacturing out of the planter building business.

Several manufacturers have been pushing dealers to order more new product than they can sell profitably. The #2 article this month captures those sentiments in a piece from Executive Editor Dave Kanicki.

Also making the list is Ag Equipment Intelligence's recently released Dealer Business Outlook & Trends Report for 2016, WEDA's dealer training courses, two episodes of our On The Record newscast and more:
