Many IBMers see Louis V. Gerstner because the savior in their company—indeed, Gerstner sees himself that approach. Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance? expresses this attitude fairly good. What Gerstner by no means discovered is that a lot of his good fortune got here from unintentionally tapping into an eighty-year-old tradition that he by no means understood. IBM’s founders, the Watsons, created this tradition within the 1910s, after which codified it within the Nineteen Fifties with the production of 3 simple ideals: appreciate, carrier and Excellence.

But today’s IBM has misplaced its tradition, its structure and its method. without doubt a century-old company is greater than its founding phrases; yet nice leaders don't search to abolish a people’s structure, quite they search a go back to its unique intent.

This ebook captures how that vary occurred—a view from underneath the dancing elephant.
