Traits of the World’s Best Companies

Business Week recently released its list of the 2009 World’s Best Companies.  I take most so-called “Best” lists with a high degree of skepticism, and this one is no exception because of how the companies were measured.  In this case, an outside consulting firm took the 2,500 largest publicly-traded companies in the world, and then from that list did culling by other factors.  A useful list to be sure, but mis-titled in my humble opinion.  Nevertheless, there are some useful insights.  I was interested in what factors these companies had in common.  So, compare your business or organization with these traits of the World’s Best Companies:

– Innovation;

– Diversified Portfolio;

– Strong Leadership:

– Aggressive Expansion; and

– Clear Vision for the Future.
