The model begins inside ITW, a Fortune 150 company that has mastered the process, and it can work for you. But only if you're willing to think inside the box. It's simple, but not easy. If it were, everybody would be doing it.
Lasting Contribution: How to Think, Plan, and Act to Accomplish Meaningful Work
The book provides a great overview of the power of private equity in today’s society. The book provides interesting insight into some of the practices used by the private equity groups to improve businesses after they are purchased.
However, because of this book I can apply them now to my own smaller business and reap the benefits of my hard work - not necessarily easy to implement but very rewarding once you do!
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has an ownership stake in a company regardless of the size of the business.
I highly recommend this book to those willing to learn how to optimize their businesses, so read "Think Inside the Box!"
