Why the best companies never stop acting like start-ups
Acclaimed management guru Jason Jennings and his research team screened more than 100,000 companies to find nine that have increased revenues and profits by 10 percent or more for ten consecutive years. After interviewing the leaders, workers, and customers of these quiet superstars, they discovered that these companies all have one thing in common: they think big, but act small.
These companies are highly ambitious about solving customers' problems, making better products, and creating value. Yet they never stop acting like startups—staying humble, treating every employee like an owner, and teaching managers to get their hands dirty.
Jennings shows readers how to apply the best practices of these nine superstar companies.
