  2. 2. Strategy is a way to win and nothing less.   -A.J. Lafley, Playing To Win
  3. 3. Those who built the visionary companies wisely understood that it is better to understand who you are than where you are going – for where you are going will almost certainly change. -Built to Last by Jim Collins & Jerry I. Porras
  4. 4. In 17 of the 18 pairs of companies in our research, we found the visionary company was guided more by a core ideology—core values and a sense of purpose beyond just making money— than the comparison company was. -Good to Great by Jim Collins
  5. 5. A deeply held core ideology company both a strong sense and a thread of continuity that organization together in the change. gives a of identity holds the face of -Jim Collins
  6. 6. In the end, building a strategy isn’t about achieving perfection; it’s about shortening your odds. -A.J. Lafley, Playing To Win
  7. 7. The Stockdale Paradox  
  8. 8. You must maintain unwavering faith that you can and will prevail in the end, regardless of the difficulties, and at the same time have the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of your current reality, whatever they might be. -Jim Collins’ Good to Great  
  9. 9. There are also several themes you’ll hear again and again: The team with the best players wins, so find and retain the best players; don’t over-brain things to the point of inaction; no matter what part of a business you’re in, share learning relentlessly; have a positive attitude and spread it around; never let yourself be a victim; and for goodness’ sake—have fun. -Winning by Jack & Suzy Welch
  10. 10. A good mission statement and a good set of values are so real they smack you in the face with their concreteness. The mission announces exactly where you are going, and the values describe the behaviors that will get you there. Speaking of that, I prefer abandoning the term values altogether in favor of just behaviors. -Winning by Jack & Suzy Welch
  11. 11. A strategy is a coordinated and integrated set of where-to-play, how-to-win, core capability, and management system choices that uniquely meet a consumer’s needs, thereby creating competitive advantage and superior value for a business. Strategy is a way to win —and nothing less.   -A.J. Lafley, Playing To Win
  12. 12. In my experience, an effective mission statement basically answers one question: How do we intend to win in this business? -Winning by Jack & Suzy Welch
  13. 13. An effective mission statement does not answer: What were we good at in the good old days? Nor does it answer: How can we describe our business so that no particular unit or division or senior executive gets pissed off? -Winning by Jack & Suzy Welch
  14. 14. At the end of the day, effective mission statements balance the possible and the impossible. They give people a clear sense of the direction to profitability and the inspiration to feel they are part of something big and important. -Winning by Jack & Suzy Welch
