It is the foremost taskand responsibilityof
our generation to re-imagine our enterprises,
private and public. from the back cover,
Re-imagine!
15
Management has a lot to do with answers.
Leadership is a function of questions. And the
first question for a leader always is Who do we
intend to be? Not What are we going to do? but
Who do we intend to be? Max De Pree, Herman
Miller
16
Re-imagine! Do we rest on our laurels or
re-invent our corners of the world?T.I.B. In
the end we are uniquely responsible for using our
power and resources to leave the world a better
place than when we arrived.This I Believe

The proper role of a healthily functioning
economy is to destroy jobs and to put labor to
use elsewhere. Despite this truth, layoffs and
firings will always sting, as if the invisible
hand of free enterprise has slapped workers in
the face. Joseph Schumpeter

We erect walls to foreign trade and even
discourage job-displacing innovations. But time
and again through our history, we have discovered
merely to preserve the comfortable features of
the present, rather than reaching for new levels
of prosperity, is a sure path to stagnation.

In Store International Equality, Intranational
InequalityThe new organization of society
implied by the triumph of individual autonomy and
the true equalization of opportunity based upon
merit will lead to very great rewards for merit
and great individual autonomy. This will leave
individuals far more responsible for themselves
than they have been accustomed to being during
the industrial period. It will also reduce the
unearned advantage in living standards that has
been enjoyed by residents of advanced industrial
societies throughout the 20th century.James

This is a dangerous world and it is going to
become more dangerous.We may not be
interested in chaos but chaos is interested in
us.Source Robert Cooper, The Breaking of
Nations Order and Chaos in the Twenty-first
Century
62
The worlds new dimension (computers, Internet,
globalization, instantaneous communication,
widely available instruments of mass destruction
and so on) amounts to a new metaphysics that, by
empowering individual zealots or agitated tribes
with unappeasable grievances, makes the world
unstable and dangerous in radically new ways.
Lance Morrow/Evil
63
The new century risks being overrun by both
anarchy and technology. The two great destroyers
of history may reinforce each other. Both the
spread of terrorism and that of weapons of mass
destruction point to a world in which Western
governments are losing control. The spread of the
technology of mass destruction represents a
potentially massive redistribution of power away
from the advanced industrial (and democratic)
states and toward smaller states that may be less
stable and have less of a stake in an orderly
world or more dramatically still, it may
represent a redistribution of power away from the
state itself and towards individuals, that is to
say terrorists or criminals. In the past to be
damaging, an ideological movement had to be
widespread to recruit enough support to take on
authority. Henceforth, comparatively small groups
will be able to do the sort of damage which
before only state armies or major revolutionary
movements could achieve. A few fanatics with a
dirty bomb or biological weapons will be able
to cause death on a scale not previously
envisaged. Emancipation, diversity, global
communicationall of the things that promise an
age of riches and creativitycould also bring a
nightmare in which states lose control of the
means of violence and people lose control of
their futures.Robert Cooper, The Breaking of
Nations Order and Chaos in the Twenty-first
Century

requirements for today and tomorrow, we have to

Lets competeby training the best workers,

The Ownership Society (GWB) This is a bundle
of proposals that treat workers as self-reliant
pioneers who rise through several employers and
careers. To thrive, these pioneers need survival
tools. They need to own their own capital
reserves, their retraining programs, their own
pensions and their own health insurance. David

For Marx, the path to social betterment was
through collective resistance of the proletariat
to the economic injustices of the capitalist
system that produced such misshapenness and
fragmentation. For Emerson, the key was to jolt
individuals into realizing the untapped power of
energy, knowledge and creativity of which all
people, at least in principle, are capable. He
too hated all systems of human oppression but
his central project, and the basis of his legacy,
was to unchain individual minds. Lawrence

How we feel about the evolving future tells us
who we are as individuals and as a civilization
Do we search for stasisa regulated, engineered
world? Or do we embrace dynamisma world of
constant creation, discovery and competition? Do
we value stability and control or evolution and
learning? Do we think that progress requires a
central blueprint, or do we see it as a
decentralized, evolutionary process?? Do we see
mistakes as permanent disasters, or the
correctable byproducts of experimentation? Do we
crave predictability or relish surprise? These
two poles, stasis and dynamism, increasingly
define our political, intellectual and cultural
landscape. Virginia Postrel, The Future and Its

If Microsoft is good at anything, its avoiding
the trap of worrying about criticism. Microsoft
fails constantly. Theyre eviscerated in public
for lousy products. Yet they persist, through
version after version, until they get something
good enough. Then they leverage the power theyve
gained in other markets to enforce their

Tommy Franks to give the initiative to 250
Special Forces already on the ground. They used
satellite phones, Predator surveillance drones,
and GPS- and laser-based targeting systems to
make the air strikes brutally effective.In
effect, they Napsterized the battlefield by
cutting out the middlemen (much of the militarys
command and control) and working directly with
the real players. The data came in so fast that

The deadliest strength of Americas new
adversaries is their very fluidity, Defense
Secretary Donald Rumsfeld believes. Terrorist
networks, unburdened by fixed borders,
headquarters or conventional forces, are free to
study the way this nation responds to threats and
adapt themselves to prepare for what Mr. Rumsfeld
is certain will be another attack. Business
as usual wont do it, he said. His answer is to
develop swifter, more lethal ways to fight. Big
institutions arent swift on their feet in
adapting but rather ponderous and clumsy and
slow. The New York Times/09.04.2002

This is an essay about what it takes to create
and sell something remarkable. It is a plea for
originality, passion, guts and daring. You cant
be remarkable by following someone else whos
remarkable. One way to figure out a theory is to
look at whats working in the real world and
determine what the successes have in common. But
what could the Four Seasons and Motel 6 possibly
have in common? Or Neiman-Marcus and WalMart? Or
Nokia (bringing out new hardware every 30 days or
so) and Nintendo (marketing the same Game Boy 14
years in a row)? Its like trying to drive
looking in the rearview mirror. The thing that
all these companies have in common is that they
have nothing in common. They are outliers.
Theyre on the fringes. Superfast or superslow.
Very exclusive or very cheap. Extremely big or
extremely small. The reason its so hard to follow
the leader is this The leader is the leader
precisely because he did something remarkable.
And that remarkable thing is now takenso its no
longer remarkable when you decide to do it.
