In 4 Secrets of High Performing Organizations, Bud suggests that all highly successful businesses have four things in common:
- Clarity of purpose and direction – they know why they are in business and where they’re going.
- The sincere commitment of everyone involved – all of their employees are engaged and committed to the success of the business.
- Skillful execution of the things that matter – they do the right things right. They are always looking for ways to do things better, quicker, cheaper.
- Mutually beneficial relationships with important outside constituencies – they understand that they are not in it alone. They build strong partnerships.
