I am often asked by would-be entrepreneurs
seeking escape from life within huge corporate
structures, How do I build a small firm for
myself? The answer seems obvious Buy a very
large one and just wait. Paul Ormerod, Why

When asked to name just one big merger that had
lived up to expectations, Leon Cooperman, former
cochairman of Goldman Sachs Investment Policy
Committee, answered Im sure there are success
stories out there, but at this moment I draw a
blank. Mark Sirower, The Synergy Trap
14
Not a single company that qualified as having
made a sustained transformation ignited its leap
with a big acquisition or merger. Moreover,
comparison companiesthose that failed to make a
leap or, if they did, failed to sustain itoften
tried to make themselves great with a big
acquisition or merger. They failed to grasp the
simple truth that while you can buy your way to
growth, you cannot buy your way to greatness.

Analysts preferred cost cutting, as long as
they could see two or three years of EPS growth.
I preached revenue and the analysts eyes would
glaze over. Now revenue is in because so many
got caught, and earnings went to hell. They said,

DREAM A dream is a complete moment in the life
of a client. Important experiences that tempt the
client to commit substantial resources. The
essence of the desires of the consumer. The
opportunity to help clients become what they want
to be. Gian Luigi Longinotti-Buitoni

Furniture vs. DreamsWe do not sell furniture
at Domain. We sell dreams. This is accomplished
by addressing the half-formed needs in our
customers heads. By uncovering these needs, we,
in essence, fill in the blanks. We convert
needs into dreams. Sales are the inevitable
result. Judy George, Domain Home Fashions

She knows more about the Volvo than the
salesman who greets her at the door. But how is
she treated? As if she has a low IQ , is slightly
hard of hearing , and really has no right to be
buying a luxury car and if she brought a male
friend with her, odds are 101 that the clueless
salesperson spent most of his time speaking to
him . Selling to Men, Selling to Women, Jeffery

Women come out better on almost every count as
investors They are less likely to hold a losing
investment too long, and less likely to wait too
long to sell a winner theyre also less likely
to put too much money into a single investment or

10 UNASSAILABLE REASONS WOMEN
RULE Women make all the financial
decisions.Women control all the wealth. Women
substantially outlive men. Women start most of
the new businesses. Womens work force
participation rates have soared
worldwide. Women are closing in on same pay for
same job. Women are penetrating senior
ranks rapidly even if the pace is slow for
the corner office per se. Womens
leadership strengths are exceptionally well
aligned with new organizational effectiveness
imperatives. Women are better salespersons than
men. Women buy almost everythingcommercial
as well as consumer goods. So what exactly is
the point of men?
107
One thing is certain Womens rise to power,
which is linked to the increase in wealth per
capita, is happening in all domains and at all
levels of society. Women are no longer content to
provide efficient labor or to be consumers with
rising budgets and more autonomy to spend.
This is just the beginning. The phenomenon will
only grow as girls prove to be more successful
than boys in the school system. For a number of
observers, we have already entered the age of
womenomics, the economy as thought out and
practiced by a woman. Aude Zieseniss de Thuin,
Financial Times, 10.03.2006
108
Demographic Upheaval!1/1/2008 60 of the Prime
Work Force (boomers), mostly white males, will
be able to retireat a rate of 10,000 per
day.As of 2005 75 of people entering the
workforce are women and minorities. As of 2008,
they will flood the management ranks as the
PWF retires.Programs for recruiting women and
minorities with the necessary intensity mostly
AWOL. Selling to Men, Selling to Women, Jeffery

113
The Core Argument Women Ought to Rule!1.
We are in a War for Talent.2. The war will
intensify.3. There is a severe shortage of
effective leaders at all levels.4. Women are
under-represented in our leadership ranks at
or near the top.5. Women and men are different
new science reinforces this view.6.
Womens strengths match the New Economys
leadership needsto a striking degree.7. Women
are also the principal purchasers of goods
and servicesretail and commercial.8. Ergo,
women are a large part of the answer to
the War for Talent/leadership shortage

Older people have an image problem. As a
culture, were conditioned toward youth. When
we think of youth, we think energetic and
colorful when we think of middle age or
mature, we think tired and washed out. and
when we think of old or senior, we think
either exhausted and gray or, more likely, we
just dont think. The financial numbers are
absolutely inarguablethe Mature Market has the
money. Yet advertisers remain astonishingly
indifferent to them. Marti Barletta,

Recently I asked three corporate executives what
decisions they had made in the last year that
would not have been made were it not for their
corporate plans. All had difficulty identifying
one such decision. Since all of the plans are
marked secret or confidential, I asked them
how their competitors might benefit from
possession of their plans. Each answered with
embarrassment that their competitors would not
benefit. Russell Ackoff (from Henry Mintzberg,
