In the CEO Afterlife

Successful multi-product companies in various markets achieve success by narrowing their businesses into manageable units. 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. 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. Wall Street is against the idea.
