According to this school of thought, the value that a company creates should be measured not just in terms of short-term profits or paychecks but also in terms of how it sustains the conditions that allow it to flourish over time. Market value is the worth of a business ascribed by the stock market. In the journey from good to great, defining your Hedgehog Concept is an essential element. It is the logic behind the creation of a new organizational unit, the Global Nutrition Group, and new corporate roles, such as chief global health officer.

In those firms, society and people are not afterthoughts or inputs to be used and discarded but are core to their purpose. Take Walgreens. As it turns out, it wasn't a dumb idea. Take Kroger, for example. You can build a great church community. Utilitarian rationality is not the only force governing corporate performance and behavior inside organizations; emotions play a major role, too.

Moreover, seeking legitimacy or public approval by aligning corporate objectives with social values has become a business imperative. These companies believe that they are more than money-making machines; they are a vehicle for advancing societal goals. No questions asked, no recriminations. You aren't pushing any harder, but the flywheel is accelerating, its momentum building, its speed increasing. Adriana Trigiani can write a good story.

They deliver more than just financial returns; they also build enduring institutions. Especially for great global companies, institution building is not the result of carrying out specific activities but a coherent, holistic pursuit in which elements reinforce one another, are inextricably intertwined, and reflect a logic and leadership style that permeate the corporation.
