Overview
THE UNIQUE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FROM A LEGENDARY CEO

So how did this MIT engineer manage grow Koch Industries intoone of the largest private companies in the world today with growth exceeding that of the S&P 500 by almost 30-foldover the last five decades? Through his unique five-dimensional management process and system called Market-Based Management. Based on five decades of cross-disciplinary studies, experimental discovery, and practical implementation across Koch companies and their 100,000 employees worldwide, the core objective of Market-Based Management s framework is as simple as it is effective: to generate "good" profit.
What is good profit? Good profit results when a company creates value for customers in a way that helps them improve their lives. Good profit is the result of innovations that customers freely vote for with their own dollars; it s the result of business decisions that create "long term value for everyone--customers, employees, shareholders, and society."
While you won't find the Koch Industries name on your home s stain-resistant carpet, your baby s more comfortable but absorbent diapers your stretch denim jeans, or your television with a better clarity screen, MBM drove these innovations and many more.
Here, drawing on revealing, honest stories from his five decades in business the company s many successes as well as its stumbles Koch walks the reader step-by-step through the five dimensions of Market-Based Management to show stockholders, entrepreneurs, leaders, students -- and innovators, supervisors and employees of all kinds, in any field --how to apply the principles to generate Good Profit in their organizations, companies, and lives.
