Great companies and their leaders spend a great portion of their time giving their learnings to others, sharing best practices, and in turn, learn and receive business ideas/knowledge from the employees they are teaching. Through this "virtual teaching cycle" business builders can create organizations that foster this knowledge exchange, resulting in smarter, more agile companies, and winning results. Dr. Tichy provides the keys to creating companies with strong values, speed and the intelligence to sustain success, decade after decade. Using examples from GE, Ford, Dell, Southwest Airlines and many others, Dr. Tichy presents and analyzes these principles in action and shows how managers can begin to transform their own businesses into teaching organizations and, consequently, better-performing companies.
