  • madho shared from Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap...And Others Don't by Jim Collins
    First Who ... Then What. We expected that good-to-great leaders would begin by setting a new vision and strategy. We found instead that they first got the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats—and then they figured out where to drive it. The old adage “People are your most important asset” turns out to be wrong. People are not your most important asset. The right people are.

    “If you look at why Amazon is so different than almost any other company that started early on the Internet, it’s because Jeff approached it from the very beginning with that long-term vision,” Hillis continues. “It was a multidecade project. The notion that he can accomplish a huge amount with a larger time frame, if he is steady about it, is fundamentally his philosophy.”

    Says Joanna Lambert, head of the Enterprise Growth Group at American Express, “Look at how quickly people moved from reading paper books to reading digital books; look at how quickly we went from buying CDs to buying music on our iTunes account. I think mobile payment is going to be the same.” And while credit cards are not going away anytime soon, “there is lots of change and disruption going on within the industry,” she said. Amex “and our colleagues at Visa and MasterCard—we’re all building new things and [testing] new things.”
