And why your company should do it too.

Few forces in business are more powerful or do more to shape the dynamics of an industry than the energy, focus, and ability of the great founders of companies. That founder’s mentality can create enormous value for a company, and this can be true long after the actual founder is gone. But lose the founder’s mentality itself, and a company can see its value rapidly destroyed …

Fouad Bendris’s insight:
It is no coincidence that three of the most defining companies in computing have, at the center of their ups and downs, a narrative that tracks back to the founder and the principles and behaviors and practices that were put in place when the company was at its best. Our research shows that the computer industry’s experience—namely, the waxing and waning of the founder’s mentality—is a deep theme in industry after industry !
