Fortune 500 revenue here, won’t get you there

The speed and pace of change demands business act, respond, and accomplish so much more, with so much less. HubSpot CEO, Brian Halligan, presents the following:

> In 1983, of the 1,000, largest American companies, by 1993, 811 remained
> In 2003, of the 1,000 largest American companies, by 2013, 243 remained

That change happens is constant reality. Now constant change accelerates the decade of decay. Demand for new revenue demands new business models and human capital competency.

In 2010 I wrote a post on Fortune 500 turnover, that simple math called almost 50%. What if the period took too much hit from the dot com bubble to provide a good source, in this post I revisit those numbers and look at 2013 and 2014 Fortune 500 numbers as well.

The top 10 blog views for 2013 continue on with a top 5 countdown to the most requested posts of the year.

Does your organization challenge find a platform within? Or will the might of the project hammer leave all who enter impact stagger out concussed?

Seriously, what were the most viewed posts on: culture, projects, impact assessments, learning? All interests revealed within.

The cost of culture, a 50% turnover of the Fortune 500

If companies were built to last, than 4 of 10, almost 50%, would still remain on the the Fortune 500 a mere 10 years later.

Sustained success has less to do with market forces than company values; less to do with competitive position than personal beliefs; less to do with resource advantages than vision. Sustained success has to do with managing culture.

Organization change without an awareness of what drives the organization’s culture may be the reason close to 90% of all projects fail.

Culture is key to remain great.
