10 Rules for Building a Successful Business

5 Keys To Building a Great Company

The Key Secret to Success in Business. And failure

Why do some businesses succeed and some fail under exactly the same circumstances and in exactly the same business?


The difference is their point of view about what a business is, and what one isnít. The difference is that successful business owners were all entrepreneurs, and that the vast majority of the people who go into business arenít.

Venture Management vs Corporate Management

Management of the venture-building process is fundamentally different  from corporate management that is focused on delivering the annual operating plan. Management of a new high-growth business is built around a  customer-driven idea or a technology. It requires entrepreneurial mindset and skills. Being first to the market is the top priority for the venture manager. Your core competence, the ability to move quickly from idea to market, is a key enabler of success.

 Case in Point  Compaq Computer

Rod Canion co-founded Compaq with Jim Harris and Bill Murto in 1982, investing $1000 in the company Ė and promptly got of to a slow start. The founders sketched the idea for a portable PC. Contrary to its early advertising, the company did not spring to life immediately. Venture capital investors felt that the product was a little too easy to do and made Canion to go back to the drawing board. Canionís fourth or fifth idea clicked. It was for a IBM-compatible portable. With $1.5 million in seed money, Canion and his crew began designing Compaqís first PC in Fenruary 1982. By early 1983, when Compaq began shipping its portables, the company had raised $30 million. In late 1983 it raised $66 million more in public offering, then finished the year with sales of $111 million.
