VISION2050 FULLREPORT FINAL. How to Lead Big Change in a 100-Year-Old Organization | Laura Garnett. When Beth Ann Kaminkow was named CEO of TracyLocke, a 100-year-old creative agency that is a subsidiary of Omnicom, she found herself at the helm of a company with plenty of experience. The challenge was figuring out how to guide the company into its second century. Kaminkow created a new vision of the organization that would enable it to be more innovative and diversify into different industries. It wouldn't be easy: Kaminkow was faced with turning a "command and control" culture, where people were told what to do, and shape it into a more collaborative and innovative culture that could compete in the new advertising world. I recently sat down with Kaminkow to find out what it takes to stage such a turnaround.

Two Main Components of a Vision Statement James Collins and Jerry Porras wrote an article in the Harvard Business Review about what should constitute a company vision. They assert that “A well-conceived vision consists of two major components: core ideology and envisioned future.” The core ideology is that which never changes and consists of the values and purpose of the company, even 100 years from now.

There’s an old Yiddish expression my Lower East Side grandmother Ida was fond of: “When luck happens, offer it a seat.” Luck happened. My family has been loyal customers of Moscot Eyewear for nearly 100 of its 100 years; my bespectacled elderly father will buy from no one else, and my grandparents bought there when they needed Moscot prescription reading glasses, as I do now. I was sitting at OST, a trendy new coffeehouse on my once very untrendy street, when an old Stuyvesant High School classmate walked in wearing hipster glasses. What the hell was Moss Lipow doing here?

Moss, it turned out, had moved into an apartment one door down from where my grandmother (and babysitter) lived, a block away from me. Moss truly knew what the Lower East Side was like in the 1970s, back when Abe Beame was mayor, in the days when President Ford told bankrupt New York to, as the New York Daily News put it so gently, “drop dead.” In 1925, when Sol was 15, he became an optician. Does he still have it? Toyota Preparing For ‘The Next 100 Years’ With Fuel Cell Vehicles.

At this year’s New York Auto Show conventional vehicles were well represented, but quietly shouting its potential to one day usurp them all was Toyota’s Fuel Cell Vehicle Concept. Or rather, a bold declaration for fuel cell vehicles was made by one of the largest banners prominently positioned high toward the atrium ceiling of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, along with other signs strategically placed: “Let’s go for a ride,” said Toyota’s message with a picture of the FCV Concept, “We’re setting the next 100 years in motion.”

The next 100 years? The company that gave the world the Prius did show vision before, but it does not yet even have a fuel cell vehicle in production. As true today as it ever was, consumers are accustomed to – shall we politely say – exuberant marketing verbiage, but we asked Toyota, does it fully intend what this sign appears to imply? Essentially, Toyota says, the answer could be yes, no, or maybe. Fuel Cell Future Hyundai Tucson FCV. Mandated By California. Vision framework.

Overview (Faust) Over the past 100 years, Harvard Business School has strived to educate business leaders who make a difference in the world. Such leaders are needed more than ever before. As Harvard Business School contemplates how to educate future business leaders, it should aspire to go beyond just teaching students to make a living or be the best at their professions; HBS must create leaders who have the vision, knowledge, skills, and leadership capabilities to "build cathedrals.

" This entails educating leaders who make a difference not just in the world, but for the world. Context President Faust reflected on Harvard Business School's past 100 years and shared a visionary perspective for the types of leaders that the School should aspire to produce. Key Takeaways At this time of crisis, we must consider the lessons of the past as we confront the future.

100 Years & Building:Steelcase CEO Guides Vision for Future - Corp! Magazine. By Karen Dybis July/August 2012 [VIDEO ALIGN="RIGHT" ID="aUI1UTm-L1I"]For Steelcase President and CEO James Hackett, there is nothing more nerve-racking than watching someone struggle to set up equipment for a business meeting. It is painful to Hackett because he knows there is a better way. There is a better way to connect people to one another. There is a better way to connect people to their environment. There is a better way for people to do their life's work.

As Steelcase celebrates its 100th anniversary in business, the venerable Grand Rapids company faces the next century with a kind of excitement, Hackett said. Its job is not that of just designing new desks or office chairs, although it does that rather well. [SYSTEMAD ALIGN="LEFT"]"When you think about a company achieving the mark of 100 years, it's really a significant event. The introspective Hackett also seems to be at the precipice of his own.

Mission for Future This is not about how to design a better cubical. Should chief executives focus on the next 100 years? What is a long time to wait for a reward? A few days or weeks, or can you wait for months or even years for something you want? For a child wanting to eat a yummy treat, a few minutes could seem a lifetime.

Walter Mischel, of Stanford University, explored this in the 1960s with a series of experiments giving children marshmallows. His studies showed that children who were willing to forgo eating a marshmallow offered to them immediately in exchange for more marshmallows in a few minutes ended up becoming more successful in life. That's the challenge facing the men and women running some of the biggest companies in the world. Should they focus on quick results, or on making really big riches for their shareholders several years, or even decades, down the line? For Steve Tappin, who coaches chief executives via his company Xinfu, this question came into focus on a summer's night last year on a rooftop in London, surrounded by 50 Chinese executives he was entertaining for pre-Olympics drinks.
