Startups that work : the 10 critical factors that will make or break a new company by Joel Kurtzman( Book )

6 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joel Kurtzman and a research team from PricewaterhouseCoopers spent four years studying 350 companies and interviewing hundreds of venture capitalists, CEOs, boards of directors, and angel investors. Their mission: to understand business startups organically, from the inside out, and to acquire the tools to literally map the success of any new business in any industry." "Entrepreneurs, investors, and venture capitalists have always relied on their gut instincts in predicting which startups are here now/gone later or able to stand the test of time. But now they can rely on hard research that translates into practical and powerful advice."--Jacket
Unleashing the second American century : four forces for economic dominance by Joel Kurtzman( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The foundation of Joel Kurtzman's thesis - that we are heading into the second American century and the wind is at our back - is based on his years of analyzing and reporting on the economy, the markets, and business, and an unbiased understanding of our strengths and weaknesses. What's clear to him after painstakingly assessing our prospects, is that all the talk about the imminent collapse of the United States is not only baseless, it's dead wrong. We've all heard the arguments before. In fact, we've heard them for at least 100 years and they have always been wrongheaded and false. (Remember how Japan was going to overtake us?) Anyone who objectively looks across the world's economic horizon, knows the United States is strong. In many ways it is even insulated from all those economic troubles abroad - Europe's debt crisis and Asia's looming slowdown. He will be arguing that even with so much of the world ailing, America will grow stronger still - and significantly so. While America's problems are real, they are manageable and receding. This is not just one man's opinion but analysis based on numbers and trends. America is a wealthy, accomplished, dynamic country, and it is better positioned to shape the future than any other nation on earth. Part of the reason for this is due to the luck of geography and geology, but not all of it. Our strengths are immense. In our downwardly spiraling discussions about our fate, we have done the economic equivalent of mistaking weather for climate. There may be economic clouds in the sky today, and perhaps a few tomorrow, but the clouds are fleeting and the long-term outlook is bright. In fact, the farther out in time we look, the better it looks"--

Common purpose : how great leaders get organizations to achieve the extraordinary by Joel Kurtzman( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this groundbreaking book, business and management expert Joel Kurtzman tackles the central question of leadership. What is common purpose? It is that rare, almost palpable experience that happens when a leader coalesces a group, team, or community into a creative, dynamic, brave, and nearly invincible we. It happens the moment the organization's values, tools, objectives, and hopes are internalized in a way that enables people to work tirelessly toward a goal. Common purpose is rarely achieved. But Kurtzman has observed that when a leader is able to bring it about, the results are outsized, measurable, and inspiring." "Based on Kurtzman's thirty years of experience working with global thought leaders and institutions, Common Purpose features personal interviews with some of the most dynamic, successful, and enduring leaders."--Jacket

Their diverse and electric list of cases, which includes GM, Enron, GE Plastics, Nortel Networks, Southwest Airlines, Staples, Progressive Corporation, and Victoria's Secret, shows how these distinct players from many industries have surged ahead of the competition and are demonstrating extraordinary results online."--Jacket

Common purpose : getting from me to we by Joel Kurtzman( Visual )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Companies that achieve and sustain exceptional results over time are rare. Those that do are made up of people united by a common purpose one that fosters hard work, sacrifice, and exemplary performance to accomplish the goals of the organization. Their leaders, whether at Disney, Google, or Staples, inspire a palpable sense of mission and provide the means for individuals to contribute as much as possible. Joel Kurtzman's "new rules of employment" to instill common purpose are based on years of research and numerous interviews with top executives. From American Express's Kenneth Chenault, to Michael Dell of Dell Inc., and Steve Wynn of Wynn Resorts, successful leaders align the interests of individuals with those of the organization. NASA in the 1960s, for example, offered employees a once-in-a-lifetime learning opportunity to tackle what they couldn't do anywhere else, aligning their personal benefit with that of the space program. And they create leaders at every level of the organization by communicating and modeling what's expected, and then providing feedback and celebrating successes
