There’s some great advice here. I really like Lisa’s list of major factors in corporate culture and innovation. And who’d want to argue with Tony and Zappos’ success? But meanwhile, good as that advice is, I can’t resist adding some warnings about old-fashioned implementation, particularly as corporate culture applies to small business. 1. Culture isn’t Corporate in small business We shouldn’t write about corporate culture in small businesses because small businesses do have their unique cultures but they aren’t corporate. There’s a real difference between culture as you and I deal with it in small ...
Through mergers and new construction, the railroad, named Chicago Great Western after 1892, quickly became a multi-state carrier. One of the last Class I railroads to be built, it competed against several other more well-established railroads in the same territory, and developed a corporate culture of innovation and efficiency to survive. Nicknamed the Corn Belt Route because of its operating area in the midwestern United States , the railroad was sometimes called the Lucky Strike Road , due to the similarity in design between the herald of the CGW and the logo used for Lucky Strike cigarettes . It was merged with the Chicago ...
Terri Kelly: 02-08-09 Nurturing a Vibrant Culture to Drive ...
W.L. Gore’s products alone, such as the eponymous GORE-TEX® water- and windproof fabrics, and a multitude of unique medical, electronic and industrial materials, might seem to assure the company’s success. But Terri Kelly attributes the 50-year-old company’s achievements not just to engineering prowess, but to its singular culture. This privately held company, with $2.5 billion in revenue and 8500 staff worldwide, began as an electronics company in Bill and Vieve Gore’s basement. In 1969, their son, Bob, discovered a polymer that was strong, chemically inert, biocompatible and water repellant, with nearly infinite applications. ... market research, surveys and trends
10 Insights From 11 Months Of Working At Google | Occam's Razor by ...
I went into Google with my own filters and expectations on what the experience would be like and what I would end up doing. Looking back the reality has been different in so many ways, even for a jaded Silicon Valley veteran of layoffs and cool companies like myself. Before I get any further I wanted to mention that I am the Analytics Evangelist for Google. I am a Consultant (a "red badge" as I often remark!). There is little difference between roles and expected outcomes between a full time employee and a consultant – nonetheless there is a very different benefits structure at multiple levels for ... market research, surveys and trends

Ghana's Greatest Contribution to Africa
When Ghana attained her independence from the British, it paved the way for several other African countries to attain their independence. Fifty three years later, those African countries are still politically independent from their erstwhile colonial masters. However, illiteracy, disease, and abject poverty are still the terms of choice that several people use to describe Africa. Maybe the best way to describe our efforts at independence is that we thought we killed the snake but could it be that the snake is really not dead? The only way to make sure the snake is dead is to cut off its head! We have uncompleted business to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Why Innovation Matters
Innovation is the key idea that is shaping corporate life, helping leaders conceive previously unimagined strategic options. Take acquisitions, as an example. Most are justified on the basis of cost and capital reduction: for example, the merger of two pharmaceutical companies and the global rationalization of overhead and operations and the savings from combining two sales forces and R&D labs. You can, however, buy earnings through acquisitions for only so long; cost-control, however necessary, is a defensive strategy. Innovation enables you to see potential acquisitions through a different lens, looking ...
