Ten Things the Best Founders Do

Bain & Company through their “Founder’s Mentality” concept that has been extensively researched, have concluded that: Leaders and the front line staff must share a bold mission, a focus on the needs of their core customers, and a commitment to develop the routines, behaviours and talent that transform their business and industry.

Only 1 in 11 companies grow sustainably – and yet in only 15% of cases do those that fail to grow blame the market. The other main factors attributed to failing to grow are all internal business complexity factors, namely:-

• Insufficient resources;
• Inability to focus;
• Poor Culture and risk aversion;
• Organisational complexity;
• Weak business plans;
• Missing capabilities;

We believe in the old adage, “If you want to be great, learn from the things that great people/businesses do well.”
