MBWA, Grameen Style!Conventional banks ask
their clients to come to their office. Its a
terrifying place for the poor and illiterate.
The entire Grameen Bank system runs on the
principle that people should not come to the
bank, the bank should go to the people. If any
staff member is seen in the office, it should be
taken as a violation of the rules of the Grameen
Bank. It is essential that those setting up a
new village Branch have no office and no place
to stay. The reason is to make us as different as
possible from government officials. Source

ForgetgtLearnThe problem is never how to get
new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how
to get the old ones out. Dee Hock
43
A pattern emphasized in the case studies in this
book is the degree to which powerful competitors
not only resist innovative threats, but actually
resist all efforts to understand them, preferring
to further their positions in older products.
This results in a surge of productivity and
performance that may take the old technology to
unheard of heights. But in most cases this is a
sign of impending death. Jim Utterback,

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,

EXCELLENCE. INNOVATE. OR. DIE.
101
Under his former boss, Jack Welch, the skills GE
prized above all others were cost-cutting,
efficiency and deal-making. What mattered was the
continual improvement of operations, and that
mindset helped the 152 billion industrial and
finance behemoth become a marvel of earnings
consistency. Immelt hasnt turned his back on the
old ways. But in his GE, the new imperatives are
risk-taking, sophisticated marketing and, above
all, innovation. BW/2005

When asked to name just one big merger that had

108
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.
Jim Collins/Time/2004

of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had

prepared for him he does the thing he ought not
to do and often it catches the expert out and

We made mistakes, of course. Most of them were
omissions we didnt think of when we initially
wrote the software. We fixed them by doing it
over and over, again and again. We do the same
today. While our competitors are still sucking
their thumbs trying to make the design perfect,
were already on prototype version 5. By the

Small Giants Companies That Choose To Be Great
Instead Of Big by Bo Burlingham
258
Small Giants/Bo
Burlingham "First, I could see that, unlike most
entrepreneurs, their founders and leaders had
recognized the full range of choices they had
about the type of company they would create."
"Second, the leaders had overcome the enormous
pressures on successful companies to take paths
they had not chosen and did not necessarily want
to follow." "Third, each company had an
extraordinarily intimate relationship with the
local city, town, or county in which it did
business -- a relationship that went well beyond
the usual concept of giving back.'" "Fourth,
they cultivated exceptionally intimate
relationships with customers and suppliers, based
on personal contact, one-on-one interaction, and
mutual commitment to delivering on promises."
259
Small Giants/Bo
Burlingham "Fifth, the companies also had what
struck me as unusually intimate workplaces."
"Sixth, I was impressed by the variety of
corporate structures and modes of governance that
these companies had come up with." "Finally, I
noticed the passion that the leaders brought to
what the company did. They loved the subject
matter, whether it be music, safety lighting,
food, special effects, constant torque hinges,
beer, records storage, construction, dining, or
fashion."

to be. Gian Luigi Longinotti-Buitoni

Furniture vs. DreamsWe do not sell furniture

by addressing the half-formed needs in our

needs into dreams. Sales are the inevitable
result. Judy George, Domain Home Fashions

No longer are we only an insurance provider.

We are in the twilight of a society based on
data. As information and intelligence become the
domain of computers, society will place more
value on the one human ability that cannot be
automated emotion. Imagination, myth, ritual -
the language of emotion - will affect everything
from our purchasing decisions to how we work with
others. Companies will thrive on the basis of
their stories and myths. Companies will need to
understand that their products are less important
