GOOD IS THE ENEMY OF GREATThe study started with 1,435 good companies companies from 1965 to 1995, looking for those that, for 15 years, either tracked or underperformed the stock market.

Followed by a transition, and subsequently returning at least 3 times the stock market for at least 15 years.

Further filtering was performed in order to ensure that companies also outperformed their industries.

Eleven companies were located that matched these criteria, and were studied in depth, and compared to competitors in their fields

We are the Tradekey We are the Best

We have beaten all Number one is the Next

8Trade key will be next ...........

Research FindingsBased on the study, the research team found that ;

Larger than life: Most of the inner celebrity shows the positive correlation with taking good to good. Its proved whereby 10 out of 11 good to great s leader are from inside.

There is no linking between executive compensation and the process of going good to great

Both good to great and comparison companies has their range of strategic planning

Most of the good to great company focus on what they should stop instead of what they should do

Technology were not cause the transformation in the good to great company

Brain storming !

Write what are the traits of any company a great company ?

Level 5 Leadership

5Level 5 Executive4Effective Leader3Competent Manager2Contributing Team Member1Highly Capable Individual

Level-5 Executive

Very humble on a personal level, but who possesses a great deal of drive and desire to succeed, where success is not personal.

AVOID got an ego and wants credit

Level 5 leaders look outside the window to accredit

Thanked others and luck

Also never blamed bad luck when things when poorly, took credit for mistakes (unlike other leaders)

Level 5 leaders infected with an incurable need to produce sustained results.

14

Rather talk about the company than themselves.

Good to great leaders never wanted to be larger-than life.

Level 5 leaders set up successors for success

Lesson Learnt

The transformation requires the brave decision, such as Abbot Laboratory to remove all nepotism.

Nowadays, the organization should take serious action on the talent management practices since it were proven the leadership is came from the inner organization.

Absence of Level 5 leaders was the consistent factor that hindered greatness

FIRST WHOTHEN WHAT

First who, then whatthe who questions come before the what questions before vision, before strategy, before tactics, before organizational structure, before technology.

Ensured the right people on the bus before anything else, get the wrong people off the bus, then figure out where to drive It.

G2G companies dont depend on the brilliance of any one person ;a lone genius.The research indicated that compensation did not correlate at all with the good to great process. No particular compensation scheme appeared to be advantageous.

17

If you have the wrong people, doesnt matter whether you have the right direction b/c company will still not be great.

Why do it this way?If you have the right people on the bus, problem of motivation and people managing are diminished

18

Leaders were rigorous, not ruthless in people decisions.

There are three steps on how the companies can be rigorous:

Dont hire someone unless youre %100 sure that theyre the right person. Its better to wait and get someone that you know is a good fitOnce you realize you need to fire someone, dont put it off. Do it quickly and fairly.

Put the best people on the biggest opportunity not the problems.

Lesson Learnt

People are NOT your most important asset. The RIGHT people are.

CONFRONT THE BRUTAL FACT(YET NEVER LOSE FAITH)Must create a culture wherein people have an opportunity to be heard the truth.

Having lofty goals can be good, but you can never lose sight of what the reality is on the ground.

21

accepted the brutal facts of reality while maintaining an unwavering faith in the endgamethat he would prevail despite the brutal facts.

Who didnt make it out? The optimists.

Those who think it will all be a quick fix and everyone will be out by Christmas are the ones that lose heart and fail.

James Bond Stockdale (December 23, 1923 July 5, 2005)

17 years of prisonment , 22

Stockdale Paradox:

AND at the same time confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be with discipline.Retain absolute faith that you can and will prevail in the end.

23

Let the Truth be Heard

To accomplish this, 4 basic practices must engaged:

Lead with questions, not answers.

Engage in dialogue and debate, not coercion.

Conduct autopsies, without blame

Build red flag mechanisms where information cannot be ignored

THE HEDGEHOG CONCEPT

The Hedgehog concept is not a goal or strategy to be the best at something, it is an understanding of what you can be the best at.

Hedgehogs simplify the world into a basic principle, see whats essential, and ignore the rest.

It took an average of four years for the G2G companies to get a Hedgehog Concept

An ancient Greek parable:The fox knows many things.The hedgehog knows one big thing and stick to it.
