Adopted from Jim Collins’s book Good to Great..
When “Entrepreneurship Ethic(EE)” vs “Culture Discipline(CD)” is plotted on X-Y curve the following are the inferences that make us realize why a Great Organization is so difficult to form..
- Start Up – High EE and low CD
- Bureaucratic – Low EE and low CD
- Hierarchical – Low EE and high CD
- Great Organization – high EE and high CD
Thus having the right balance of entrepreneurship ethics and culture of discipline is what makes an organization great and hence is so difficult to design.
