Proof That Less is More

In the CEO Afterlife

We use to call them SBU’s, strategic business units. Last year, Booz & Company conducted a broad study amongst 1,800 executives on the power of focus in business. In fact, only 18% of executives of incoherent companies say their firms are performing above the industry average versus 59% of the coherent company executives. Ever since I started blogging about leadership and strategy, I’ve been harping about the notion of “doing less, better” as a business modus operandi.
