Iconic : How to Create a Virtuous Circle of Success, Hardback Book

Iconic : How to Create a Virtuous Circle of Success Hardback


This book is about icons - exceptional organizations (orchestras, restaurants, sports teams or companies) with an aspiration to make or do something special, and to go on doing so, year in, year out for decades.

This is what gives these organizations their undeniably iconic status.

By selecting 14 iconic organizations (including ElBulli, McKinsey, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Procter & Gamble, the All Blacks) and researching what characteristics make them different from others, the authors discovered a "competency spiral" which these organizations exhibit in their success.

Attracting and retaining the right people; forging individuals into a team; and achieving outstanding results, time after time, through continuous improvement and adjustment - these are the key competencies required to achieve iconic status.
