Berkshire Beyond Buffett : The Enduring Value of Values, Paperback / softback Book

Berkshire Beyond Buffett : The Enduring Value of Values Paperback / softback

Part of the Columbia Business School Publishing series

Description

Berkshire Hathaway, the $500 billion conglomerate that Warren Buffett built, is among the world's largest and most famous corporations.

Yet, for all its power and celebrity, few people understand Berkshire, and many assume it cannot survive without Buffett.

This book proves them wrong. In a comprehensive portrait of the corporate culture that unites Berkshire's subsidiaries, Lawrence A.

Cunningham unearths the traits that assure the conglomerate's continued prosperity.

Riveting stories of each subsidiary's origins, triumphs, and journey to Berkshire reveal how managers generate economic value from intangibles like thrift, integrity, entrepreneurship, autonomy, and a sense of permanence.

Rich with lessons for those wishing to profit from the Berkshire model, this engaging book is a valuable read for entrepreneurs, business owners, managers, family business members, and investors, and it is an important resource for scholars of corporate stewardship.

General readers will enjoy learning how an iconoclastic businessman transformed a struggling textile company into a corporate legacy.
