Sample text

Might organizations like the John Lewis Partnership which claims and pursues contrary values and which has demonstrated sustained commercial success even in the face of fierce competition, offer a demonstration of the alternative pathway as outlined by Colin Mayer and others? A close examination of the case should, at the very least, surface the nature of the challenges faced by such organizations and how they are managed. The short-termist, ‘flash boys’, characteristics of the recent period have not always characterized UK capitalism.

Leadership: the God that Failed In the face of the recent financial crisis, and the collapse or near-collapse of a number of major firms, much opprobrium has been poured on the leaders of these failed businesses. We have seen the catastrophic consequences of these leaders as they destroy businesses through greed, criminality, and recklessness, and many of yesterday’s heroes and their achievements are now seen as hollow and illusory, and their once lauded qualities—limitless confidence, singlemindedness, results focused attitude—are reassessed as arrogance, inflexibility, self-centredness, incompetence, greed, and indeed dishonesty.

How is leadership exercised in the Partnership? There are other fundamental issues. How should success and performance be measured? What are the objectives and ultimate purpose of the Partnership? The first paragraph of the Constitution is admirably clear: The Partnership’s ultimate purpose is the happiness of all its members, through their worthwhile and satisfying employment in a successful business. Because the partnership is owned in trust for its members, they share the responsibilities of ownership as well as its rewards—profit, knowledge and power.
