Top 7 Principles for Transforming Your Business from Mediocre to Great

Growing In the Knowledge Economy

Because in today's knowledge-driven economy growth is based increasingly on knowledge, not on hardware,


it offers unprecedented opportunities and ease of market entry especially through Internet. As rapid change and discontinuities of the new economy offer unlimited opportunities, growing requires entrepreneurial creativity, curiosity, imagination, and emotional energy – qualities that exist, and even abound, among the people in your company.

Balanced Organization: 5 Basic Elements

Leadership (Fire):

Balanced Growth

Balanced growth is a key to prosperity in the new economy. "Sustainable growth – growth for the long haul – requires meticulous attention to the basics: cost structure, guality, product development cycle time, productivity, asset utilization, investment of capital, supply chain innovation, customer service satisfaction, and all other components of operational excellence. Neverending focus on these generates the resources for growth," write Ram Charan and Noel M. Trichy in their book Every Business Is a Growth Business,

The Tao of Business Success

Sustainable Ability to Change

Change brings opportunity to those who can grasp it. In today's world characterized by rapid unpredictable change and volatility, the sustainable ability to change is much more important than the ability to create change in the first place. The ability to change can be achieved by building an adaptive organization and  synergizing systemically such corporate capabilities as strategy innovation, value innovation, extreme leadership, and enterprise-wide business process management.

Harnessing Your People Power

People as your most important asset. Your technologies, products and structures can be copied by competitors. No one, however, can match your highly charged, motivated people who care. People are your firm's repository of knowledge and they are central to your company's competitive advantage. Well educated, coached, and highly motivated people are critical to the development and execution of strategies, especially in today's faster-paced, more perplexing world, where top management alone can no longer assure your firm's competitiveness.

Inclusive Approach

At the heart of the inclusive approach is the belief that understanding stakeholder needs – the needs of customers, employees, suppliers, shareholders, society, and the environment – and incorporating them into enterprise strategy are central to the achievement of sustainable growth and competitiveness.

Competitive Strategies: 2 Types

Improving Business Performance: Virtuous Circles

Various business performance improvement approaches focus on alternative ways to build and run a company.

The concept of “virtuous circles” is one of them. It has all those contributing to value creation for the customer pulling forcibly in the same direction. In practice, this also means identifying and balancing short- and long-term goal structures for all stakeholders and changing management incentive schemes to promote long-term sustainable performance.
