I came across Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies, a book that some of you might have read as early as 1994, but that has only just come across my radar.
You may want to have a few comparisons beforehand to determine for yourself whether a business is really that hard to run.
In recent years, I have seen a number of popular books try to describe what makes some workplaces more positive or successful than others.
Imagine an industry whose interests seem to constantly collide with those of their clients. Where the length of titles is more important than the depth of legacy. An industry that hasn’t changed how its product is “manufactured” for more than four decades. An industry where its brightest minds write a resignation op-ed as if they were leaving hell.
